Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Health care organizations face many challenges in providing resources to retain professional staff nurses at the bedside. Staff nurses have proven to be an essential asset at the bedside; however, the challenge revolves around hospitals being able to retain these nurses and to foster their professional growth. Research confirms that providing the staff nurse an opportunity to grow within their organization, increases job satisfaction and retention rates. In order to achieve the challenge of fostering growth and retention of the staff nurse. A collaborative team of nurses, upper leadership, managers, educators needs to develop a professional pathway for the nurses. One major metropolitan hospital transitioned from a traditional clinical ladder to a professional development model (PDM) which allowed nurses an opportunity for growth. The PDM included four levels of nursing: level 1 nurse: new to the nursing profession through level 4: certified and expert in their profession. Guidelines were developed to govern the different levels of growth. Two Review boards: (service and division) were organized and chaired by managers and staff nurses as voting members of the board regarding the approval process of the staff nurses. The service review board approved level 3 recommends level 4 applicants to the division review board. Division Review Board approved level 4 nurses after an interview process that demonstrates expertise and leadership in the clinical and professional role. The effectiveness of the PDM was evaluated through a survey to the staff nurses manager regarding the engagement, job satisfaction, leadership, and patient outcomes
