Advancing in Health and Health Care Careers - Rung by Rung

This issue brief, drawing on the experience of the Baltimore Alliance for Careers in Healthcare, illustrates how one such career ladder system could work, as well as some important considerations when designing and implementing such a system. The alliance is a grantee of Jobs to Careers: Promoting Work-Based Learning for Quality Care, a national initiative focused on establishing systems that train, develop, reward, and advance current frontline health and health care workers in order to improve the quality of care and services provided to patients and communities.
