Clinical ladder programs were designed to support nurse retention and professional development. Hospital systems are vigorously working to recover from the critical staffing shortages exacerbated by the pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention framework for program evaluation was utilized to assess a hospital professional nurse clinical ladder. These findings suggest favorable outcomes in commitment to stay and professional development. This evaluation can serve as a potential resource for organizations to evaluate and enhance programs to support nurse retention.
