  • Nursing Clinical Ladder Advancement Program

  • As professional nurses working in a Magnet hospital, RNs continuously strive to provide the best and safest care to our patients, their families, and the community we serve. Many professional nurses at Newport Hospital excel in their patient care responsibilities, their stewardship of resources, and their efforts to advance the profession.

    The Clinical Ladder Advancement Program was developed to recognize and reward those nurses who go beyond the requirements of their position descriptions to create and sustain our Magnet environment.


    The purpose of Clinical Ladder advancement is to promote and to recognize excellence in professional practice. The Clinical Ladder serves as a vehicle to:

    • Provide a challenging and nurturing environment allowing nurses to excel personally and professionally.
    • Recognize nursing as an intellectual process.
    • Develop standards and evaluate nursing practice based on evidence-based research.
    • Provide career mobility and compensation to all nurses and especially those who distinguish themselves through expert practice.
    • Identify and develop leaders in the clinical staff.
    • Increase personal job satisfaction. 


    Join us as we continue to provide the highest quality patient care in one of the most beautiful places imaginable.
