Abstract:
Paper Presentation: Promoting nursing practice excellence requires having a clear vision of professional practice and then designing strategies that promote nursing practice outcomes. This presentation will focus on the steps taken to creating a new advancement program that truly reflects professional practice and nursing outcomes. Using our professional practice model based on ACCN's Synergy Model, Healthy Work Environments and the basic principles of accountability, autonomy and authority we created a Professional Nursing Advancement Program (ASPIRE). Unlike the former clinical ladder that differentiated levels based on tasks and activities, this program focused on intentional nursing actions and the resulting outcomes. Nurses influence on the safe passage of patients through a shift, stay, or across a care continuum is a critical focus of the ASPIRE program. ASPIRE requires nurses to provide evidence of how they make a difference in the area of clinical, education, leadership, and evidence based practices. Practice is differentiated by spheres of influence and level of outcomes. To receive colleague, mentor or leader level recognition nurses are expected to provided evidence of their practice and resulting outcomes in a portfolio which is reviewed by a panel of peers and colleagues. ASPIRE is relatively new, however three important outcomes are being observed. Nurses are embracing the language of the professional practice model. Nurses are learning how to identify best practices. Lastly, nurses beginning to express their contribution in terms of outcomes instead of tasks. ASPIRE is truly empowering nurses to demonstrate the difference they make for patients and the organization.
