Demonstration of professional development support and clinical advancement programs are hallmarks of a professional nursing practice environment and critical components of Nursing Magnet status.

The clinical ladder for Transplant Coordinators is based on the 15 standards of practice described in the Introduction to Transplant Nursing: Core Competencies. Each progressive level subsumes the knowledge, skills, and abilities of the preceding level(s).
