A new advancement model implemented at a large healthcare organization provided master’s-prepared clinical nurses the opportunity to gain leadership skills through working with a nurse residency program while being mentored by nursing professional development practitioners. The outcomes of resource allocation and growth were valuable for the organization, and master’s-prepared clinical nurses are now contributing towards the nurse residency program’s leadership roles.
