  • Description
    [Excerpt from publisher]The International Council of Nurses (ICN) firmly believes that career development is a major contributing factor in the advancement of health systems and the nursing profession worldwide, and is directly linked to the maintenance of high quality care delivery. Career development must therefore be supported and sustained by means of an articulated educational system, recognised career structures (including clinical ladders) flexible enough to provide career mobility, and access to nursing entrepreneurship and/or independent practice opportunities.
