At Prisma Health Baptist Hospital, our nurses deliver care through our unique nursing professional practice model. This model supports the registered nurse’s control over the delivery of nursing care and the environment in which care is delivered.

The new Clinical Ladder Program at Prisma Health Baptist Hospital supports the nursing strategic plan, specific to recruitment and retention of registered nurses, professional growth and development, and supporting quality care. The ladder recognizes clinical excellence for bedside practice, enhances employee satisfaction and validates professional nursing activity representative of Magnet® concepts of nursing excellence. The program encompasses knowledge, skill/practice development (based on Benner’s model “Novice to Expert”), professional development and organizational achievement.
The program is based upon four levels:
Nurses achieving advancement on the ladder receive a clinical incentive based on the level achieved in the ladder. The first participants to the new CLP program began submitting portfolios in January 2020 with ongoing quarterly submissions thereafter.
Advancement System for Clinical Excellence and Nursing Development (ASCEND) accepted the program’s final portfolio submissions on October 15, 2019, in preparation of transition to the Clinical Ladder Program on January 15, 2020. Current ASCEND participants will continue their previously awarded quarterly payouts for two years, at which time clinical nurses will have the option to participate in the CLP program.
At Prisma Health Baptist Parkridge Hospital, we love our nursing team members and want to see them shine. Here are some of the ways we recognize our nurses.
Thousands of nurses receive Daisy nominations every year, and each receive a pin to recognize their nomination. More than 100 Prisma Health nurses have received the award and the “Healer’s Touch” statue, made by Shona artists in Zimbabwe.
