Clinical Advancement and Recognition Program for Professional Nurses
In an effort to provide professional nurses with opportunities for growth, development, and recognition of achievement, Lourdes supports a Clinical Advancement and Recognition Program. The program delineates five levels of practice. Eligibility for and advancement within the levels is dependent upon prerequisites and achievement of selected criteria in the areas of clinical practice, education, leadership, and research. These areas, as described in the Lourdes Philosophy of Nursing, contribute to "...the high standards of the nursing profession." The Clinical Advancement and Recognition Program provides a framework for self-directed growth and advancement of professional nurses.
The program promotes professional development and encourages contribution to the organization. Whether it be in such forms as committee involvement, certification in a specialty, leading of community outreach programs or involvement in nursing research, the creativity and knowledge of nurses at Lourdes Hospital is fostered - to the ultimate benefit of the nurse, the hospital, and the patient
