Hi I was hoping some one could help me. I am a Nurse Educator from a small
country call New Zealand. The hospital group I am working for is developing
a process of encouraging and rewarding nurses for their skills from basic to
advanced by certification basic and advanced practice skills. The problem is
I would like the nurses to have an increase in both remuneration and status
for this. I have looked on the WWW to see how others have set up and
developed a similar process, but I can find any thing. If you have a process
like this at your hospital I would love information on it, also the pros and
cons... of having a system like this.

We have just discussing this also at our hospital. I worked at the VAMC (government) and they have a system that specifically defines and rewards staff by degrees. It was a very good scale, and really reflected the experience along with the degree. Perhaps you could contact them for more information.
