Career development that improves care

The innovations and knowledge of nurses often lead to significant care advances. Our nurses are supported and recognized for their contributions to patient care and to the nursing profession. One way we do this is through the Nurse Leader Advancement Program, which provides an opportunity for personal and professional growth.

The program rewards individual initiative and involvement in health system activities with a monetary bonus. To participate, nurses must meet baseline standards and have at least one year of tenure as an RN at the health system. Participants earn points toward a bonus for tenure, educational level reached and professional activities. These range from committee work and continuing education to mentorships and community service.

Growth opportunities include a nursing residency and the Reilly Nursing Leadership Fellowship. The Reilly fellowship is a 2-year leadership program for experienced nursing leaders. Currently, program participation is limited to nursing leaders at The University of Kansas Health System. In the coming months, we expect to extend eligibility to those who work for other healthcare organizations. Learn more about our residency and fellowship options.
