ello Kristen,

Great job on this post! I totally forgot about the clinical ladder programs. I remember when I was hired as a RNI. However, I never heard that classification ever again after that very first day at work. The synergy model promotes the achievement of the best possible patient outcomes. As you mention, many of the nurses’ characteristics should be applied to all patients like advocacy and clinical judgement. The patients’ and nurses’ characteristics are leveled from 1 to 5 (Peterson & Bredow, 2013). One way to apply the synergy model in our practice is with the assignment. For instance, a hospice patient could be given to a nurse that is a level 5 (expert) on caring practices.

Peterson, S. J., & Bredow, T. S. (2013).
