Abstract:
Paper Presentation: The Professional Nursing Council, the cornerstone of the organization's professional practice mode, embarked on the mission to develop and implement a clinical advancement ladder for professional registered nurses within the organization. A subcommittee was formed, comprised of staff nurses from each division of nursing and facilitated by a clinical nurse specialist and the director of professional practice. The five-month process included staff nurse surveys, magnet and non-Magnet hospital surveys and biweekly meetings of the subcommittee to organize the structure of the clinical advancement ladder. Feedback from the Chief Nursing Officer was solicited during the entire process. The clinical advancement ladder was named The Nursing Bridge to Excellence by one of the staff nurse members to highlight the emphasis on lifelong learning and the continued road of nursing excellence. The Nursing Bridge to Excellence follows Benner's novice to expert concepts by providing levels for the beginning or novice nurse, Level I, through the expert staff nurse, Level IV. The structure of the clinical advancement ladder also reflects the organization's nursing theoretical framework, based on the tenets of Florence Nightingale. Forces of Magnetism reflected in the structure and criteria of the clinical advancement ladder include: Quality of Nursing Leadership, Management Style, Quality of Care, Quality Improvement, Consultation and Resources, Autonomy, Community and the Healthcare Organization, Nurses as Teachers, Interdisciplinary Relationships and Professional Development. The development subcommittee has conducted hospital wide inservice opportunities for other staff nurses, as well as conducting mentoring groups for their colleagues. A nursing research study is being conducted to measure the change in the nurse's perception of their nursing practice as a result of completing the Nursing Bridge to Excellence levels. The Nursing Bridge to Excellence has provided a creative, peer reviewed opportunity for advancement at the bedside.
