Abstract:
Historically, organizations have been adept at supporting nursing practice through Clinical Ladder programs. These programs focused on the staff nurse contribution to clinical practice. However, one Midwestern pediatric Magnet facility felt a vital component, professional development, was missing from their program. In October 2006, staff nurses and nurse leaders were charged with the intention of expanding the previous clinical ladder. After reviewing the current literature and surveying other Magnet facilities, it was evident the program needed restructured. ADVANCE (Achievements Demonstrating Valuable Advancements for Nursing Clinical Excellence) is a program designed to recognize and reward individuals for their contributions to the profession of nursing. Based on Benners Novice to Expert Nursing Theory, seven domains define ADVANCE: Education of Self, Education of Others, Leadership, Community Service, Quality Improvement, Clinical Practice Analysis (Research and Evidence Based Practice), and Peer Coach. Annually, ADVANCE participants submit a blinded, professional nursing portfolio. A Peer Council reviews the portfolios to maintain equitable program administration. Nurses are rewarded based on a five tier compensation structure. Since program implementation, more than a 50% increase has been seen in ADVANCE participation. Through participation in committees, programs, Evidence Based Practice and research, nurses are taking a vested interest in organizational outcomes. The impact of the program has gone beyond the four walls of the organization, through publications, community service and presentations. Through annual performance evaluations and the ADVANCE program, nurses are rewarded not only for their clinical knowledge, but for their professional contributions as well.
