Clinical Ladder & Senior Nurse Leaders

Strong support for career development


The clinical ladder is a system that encourages nurses to apply for senior staff status. Nurses become eligible to apply for level one senior staff status after they have been employed as a nurse at Maimonides for at least one year and have met the requirements.

After two years as a nurse at Maimonides and the completion of set requirements, a level one senior staff member can apply for level two senior staff status. Maimonides offers a generous salary, commensurate with each year of prior nursing experience.
