Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Conceived in 1994, our Professional Nurse Advancement and Recognition Program (PNARP) was designed to provide registered nurses with opportunities for growth, professional development and recognition beyond job expectations. The program focuses on clinical practice, leadership, education and evidence-based practice/research. In 2008, we began the current revision with an evidence-based survey designed to elicit nurses perceptions of their Clinical Ladder Program. Voices of nurses across the organization were heard; nursing committees recommended revisions to criteria; and the PNARP Committee oversaw the process. More opportunities for professional development were created, support for advancing education was enhanced and board certification was strongly encouraged. The new Magnet Model components and terminology were incorporated as categories in which a nurse could earn credit: Exemplary Professional Practice (Clinical), Transformational Leadership (Leadership), Structural Empowerment (Education), and New Knowledge, Innovations & Improvements (Evidence-based Practice/Research). Applicants advance based on Benners novice to expert practice levels. Nurses at the Novice/Advanced Beginner and Competent levels are recognized through the annual performance appraisal process. Nurses at the Proficient, Experienced, Accomplished and Expert levels also are recognized with a pin and monetary reward. Scoring guidelines were created to insure objectivity and measurability of the sources of evidence. The scoring formula was developed based on: specific activity above and beyond job expectations; activity that supports our mission, vision and values; and time commitment. Nurses applying for recognition are expected to attend a formal class prior to submitting their application. PNARP Committee members oversee the application process by serving as mentors and educators.
