1 Issue: Clinical Ladder Proposal Presenter: Donna Grochow For Presentation to: Nursing Directors Date/Time: 4/22/ Situation Background UC Irvine Medical Center Professional Clinical Ladder A review of the current clinical ladder structure has been completed. An extensive review of the nursing literature and ladders from other institutions was also completed. Current structure has set criteria for advancement to CNIII. A performance improvement project is the basis for the advancement along with some basic performance evaluation criteria. No structure is currently in place for the maintenance of the CNIII. The goal of the proposal is to revise the current ladder structure to align with the Novice to Expert philosophy, develop a process to better reflect the many activities in which staff engages, and to highlight how the Magnet components correlate with the work of the frontline nursing staff. Analysis Refer to attached overview which contains the following components of the proposal: 1. Structure of clinical ladder proposal (Novice to Expert) a. The proposal is based on a model with CNI, CNII, CNIII & CNIV b. Model is easily restructured to have CNI to CNIII by combining CNIII & CNIV components 2. Structure of criteria 3. Criteria for advancement 4. Criteria for maintenance 5. Recommendations The current professional clinical ladder lacks consistent criteria for advancement as well as criteria for ongoing maintenance. Recommended Committee Actions: Who What Due Date Nursing Directors 1. Review attached proposal for the revision of the ladder 2. Conduct Leadership discussion: o Is this something that should be pursued? o Is this proposal feasible? o Provide revisions and suggestions o Finalize a rough draft template 3. Introduce proposal in Shared Governance Committees o Obtain Feedback o Revisions and suggestions 4. Involve CNA union early in process 5. Revise the current ladder structure to demonstrate both maintenance of the nurse s current status and be a mechanism for promotion. 5/6/11 1

2 Proposed by: Donna Grochow Nursing clinical Ladder at UC Irvine A PROPOSAL Initial February 2011 Revised April

3 February 22, 2011 Department of Nursing Professional Clinical Ladder Proposal for Revision of the Clinical Ladder This proposal is to identify a starting point to revitalizing the clinical ladder. Purpose: Objective: The proposed Clinical Ladder for Registered Nurses is a voluntary program that recognizes and rewards the RN for developing skills and contributing to improved patient care. The proposed ladder has been designed to engage nursing in the ANCC Magnet model. Enhance recruitment and retention of competent, experienced, engaged staff Promote professional development Establish an effective reward system for improved clinical performance and professional development Provide opportunity for advancement in the practice setting Promote evidence-based practice Components of Proposal: 1. Structure of clinical ladder proposal (Novice to Expert) 2. Structure of criteria 3. Criteria for advancement 4. Criteria for maintenance 5. Recommendations 3

4 Proposed Structure of Clinical Ladder Clinical Nurse I Corresponds to the Novice in Benner s model The novice nurse is obtaining knowledge and experience in clinical and technical skills. Under the guidance of a preceptor, charge nurse, nurse manager and educator, this nurse collects objective data and seeks assistance in making clinical decisions. Clinical Nurse II Corresponds to the Advanced Beginner or Competent nurse in Benner s model The advanced beginner nurse is guided by policies, procedure and standards. They are building a knowledge base through practice and are most comfortable in a task environment. They describe a clinical situation from the viewpoint of what they need to do rather than relating the context of the situation or how the patient responds. Advanced beginners practice from a theoretical knowledge base while they recognize and provide for routine patient needs. The competent nurse integrates theoretical knowledge with clinical experience in the case of patients and families. This nurse demonstrates mastery of most technical skills, and begins to view clinical situations from a patient and family focus. Clinical Nurse III *Corresponds to the proficient nurse in Benner s model The proficient nurse has in-depth knowledge of nursing practice, perceives situations as a whole, and comprehends the significant elements based on previous experience. They respond to most situations with confidence, speed, and flexibility. The nurses develop effective relationships with other caregivers and provide leadership with the healthcare team to formulae integrated approaches to care. Clinical Nurse IV *Corresponds to the expert nurse in Benner s model The expert nurse s intuition and skill arise from comprehensive knowledge grounded in experience. Expert nurses operate from a deep understanding of the total situation. They collaborate with other caregivers to challenge and coordinate institutional resources to maximize advocacy for patient and family care in achieving the most effective outcomes. (CNIII and CNIV components could be combined if model will not have a CNIV RN) 4

5 Proposed Criteria Structure Three Categories of Excellence: o Clinical Practice o Leadership February 22, 2011 o Personal Professional Growth and Development Credit will be given for activities that demonstrate the achievements of the nurse Overview of Advancement/Maintenance Advancement from CNI to CNII would be based on the following: o Successful completion of orientation o (Other criteria as decided during ladder development) Advancement from CNII to CNIII would be based on the following: o Successful completion of project o Successful attainment of points (# to be decided) Advancement from CNIII to CNIV (if applicable) would be based on the following: o (Criteria to be decided) o Successful attainment of points (# to be decided) Annual maintenance would be based on the following: o Successful attainment of points (# to be decided) Proposed Criteria (Advancement) 1. Eligibility for Advancement: a. X number of points from specific categories (Point totals below for demonstration purposes only) i. CNII: 25 ii. CNIII: 35 iii. CNIV: 50 b.

Ongoing Maintenance: o With each annual performance evaluation, a review of the accomplishments will be included. o Manager will determine that proper documentation and credit has been demonstrated. Candidate will provide a portfolio to manager Proposed Plan for Incomplete Maintenance Packet Employee proceeds with Performance Evaluation and Ladder review at Performance Review time. Plan will be developed between employee and manager with the following options: o Remain at current level, develop a timeline for completion and date for review to determine that credits have been achieved. o Decision made to no longer continue at this level and move to a lower rung on the ladder Benefits of Design Objective Criteria Credit will be given for professional behaviors an personal growth Personal and UC Irvine activities are given value Criteria choices allow for varied interests 6
