Abstract:
PURPOSE: In 2006, The University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) made a commitment to nurses wishing to advance professionally while remaining at the bedside by implementing a self-directed abundance model for professional advancement. The Professional Development Framework (PDF) serves the goal of UMHS nursing to provide world-class patient care. This model encourages nurses to build their careers at UMHS at a self-initiated pace. DESCRIPTION: The PDF structure is built upon 5 domains of nursing practice: clinical skills and knowledge, therapeutic relationships, professional relationships, professional development, and advancing practice through innovation and research. Within each domain, clinical behaviors are further defined and articulated along a continuum of evolving expertise. Each domain has behaviors that describe the expected performance of a nurse at each level of the framework. Behaviors are described for each domain of nursing practice. Nurses must demonstrate a preponderance of behaviors within a given level in order to advance. There are 4 levels within the PDF; each describes nursing practice from the novice nurse at level A, a new graduate nurse with less than 12 months of experience, to a nurse at level E, whose expertise is exemplified by highly developed clinical skills as well as high level contributions within the UMHS community and, perhaps, beyond. Applicants seeking advancement must submit a portfolio discussing their clinical expertise, then interview with a 3- to 4-member subgroup of a central committee that verifies, amplifies, and clarifies the contents of the portfolio. EVALUATION/OUTCOMES:Since 2006, 771 applications have been submitted, with a success rate of 81%. The UMHS PDF for nursing depends upon creating a practice environment with no barriers, where nurses flourish and prosper in extraordinary ways in the delivery of outstanding patient care that is innovative, grounded in science, guided by our core values, and driven by compassion. Our model sparks a passion and an awakening that empowers nurses to pursue professional development that promotes excellence. Nurses know their daily work brings value to their patients, profession, and organization. We embrace the principle of abundance and never-ending growth. Talent is bountiful and possibilities are endless.
