that tradition continues with every nurse as they provide a safe, healing
environment for their patients. Our focus is to create a culture of excellence
by encouraging innovation, new ideas and leadership.

Nursing Professional Development Ladder at Good Samaritan
Good Samaritan nursing leadership has developed a way to recognize the
professional excellence of their nurses and their desire to provide the
best care to the community. The Nursing Professional Development Ladder
was recently created to challenge nurses to better themselves professionally
and reward them for their efforts.
Within the four different categories of the ladder—Clinical, Community,
Education, Leadership—each nurse at Good Samaritan will have the
opportunity to score ‘points’ based on their participation
in community events, nursing experience, education, certifications and
other accomplishments. “We are excited about this program because
it is designed to recognize and motivate the development of the professional
nurse,” said Karen Haak, Chief Nursing Officer.
