Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: This presentation provides an in-depth discussion of the design and implementation process used to develop a Pay for Skills Compensation Model. This model has served as a successful recruitment and retention tool for a multi-hospital healthcare system. Pay for Skills has been a successful professional development, recruitment and retention strategy at Morton Plant Mease Health Care for the past 7 years. This model built job requirements and skill sets into each step of the clinical ladder. A nurse who brings to the organization skills beyond the basic job requirements qualifies for higher pay. The current model offers 22 skills that encombent nurses can select to achieve and be rewarded on an annual basis. Samples of the skills are: Charge Nurse Skills; Mentor Skills, Professional Skills; Process Improvement Skills; University Partnership Preceptor Skills; Patient Safety Resource Skills; and Research Resource Skills. After being educated on an incorporating these skills into practice for one year, the nurse receives either a percent increase on his or her salary or an one time professional bonus. The overall goal of the program is to recruit and reward qualified nurses. Specific goals are: ~ Fill core vacancies ~ Decrease overtime ~ Decrease use of supplemental staff ~ Increase nurse's satisfaction with staffing levels ~ Increase patient, physician and team member satisfaction ~ Improve patient outcome All of these goals were met in the one year pilot program. This program has been reviewed and/or revised on an annual basis and with much input from the nurses closes to our customers, we have been able to sustain these gains.
