The Clinical Ladder has been accepting applications, reviewing portfolios and awarding bonus checks since its launch in 2010.  Since then many AAMC nurses have climbed the ladder and we wanted to provide you with a current list of those achievements as well as spotlight our review board.climbing-ladder

Here is what Don Jump has to say:

“As a member of the AAMC Nursing Clinical Ladder Review Board, I have a window on the level of nursing excellence at AAMC.  You leave the board meeting knowing that nurses are advancing the strategic goals of hospital leadership and delivering a consistent high level of care to patients and their families.  I have been deeply inspired by the force of energy woven into the fabric of our hospital and the community by the Clinical Ladder applicants.”
