I am a former ICU nurse working as an ADON/Unit Manager at a SNF. When I worked at the hospital we had a clinical ladder program (RN I, RN II, etc.) that encouraged personal growth, employee retention, and increased job satisfaction.
In all my searching, I have only found Clinical Ladder examples for acute care/hospital settings. However, I can only imagine what a huge impact this type of program could have on skilled nursing facilities.
Does anyone have any good examples of a Clinical Ladder model for long-term-care settings? Ideas? Comments? Suggestions?
