Clinical ladder programs (CLPs) are often utilized by healthcare organizations to monitor and incentivize staff nurse development. Few studies exist related to this topic, yet implementation of CLPs can be an important factor in staff nurse retention and satisfaction, and therefore requires better understanding.
To identify and examine the factors that contribute to a successful...
Experimental studies are considered capable of generating substantial evidence; therefore, their production and diffusion are continuously encouraged. However, their trends as publication outputs in nursing journals have rarely been evaluated to date.
To describe experimental study design features among the highest indexed nursing journals.
A scoping review was performed...
To explore nurses’ views and establish consensus on the key content of the essential evidence‐based practice (EBP) competencies developed by Melnyk et al.
