    I work in the ED and we are constantly working on improvement projects. I am the chair of the ED professional nurses council. We were on a campaign that started early 2016 to increase the amount of clinical ladder nurses. We had coffee carts, intradepartmental mentorships, and buddy systems to increase the number and to motivate our fellow ed nurses to hop on the ladder. This would in our hopes boost unit involvement in other improvement projects and lend clout to the “leading from within” motto of Magnet. We were successful and added approximately 7 nurses to the clinical ladder with our campaign! This was equivalent to a 40% increase!
