Nursing is a career field that has several methods of entry to practice. Clinical laddering in nursing education includes starting at beginning levels and then advancing to higher levels of nursing practice through education. Benefits of clinical laddering include the variety of options as well as the flexibility that is available for students. Additionally, laddering allows students to obtain work experience at each level of nursing while advancing their education and career. There are several options for people who currently hold a nursing degree and nearly as many ways to get there, in terms of education, certifications, and specializations.

It is acceptable to practice as CNA, LPN, or ADN; however, there are benefits to furthering your formal nursing education. Primary benefits of higher education include an increase in salary, improved career autonomy, responsibility, and the ability to work in specialty fields.
