Pathway to Excellence® Program Consulting

The goal of the Pathway to Excellence® Program is to positively effect nurse satisfaction and retention by credentialing the foundation of a healthy workplace for nurses. The designation substantiates the professional satisfaction of nurses and identifies it as one of the best places to work.

For an organization to earn the Pathway to Excellence® distinction, it must successfully undergo a thorough review process that documents foundational quality initiatives in creating a positive work environment — as defined by nurses and supported by research. These initiatives must be present in the facility’s practices, policies, and culture. Nurses in the organization verify the presence of the criteria in the organization through participation in a completely confidential online survey.

TCD Communications assist the nursing organization as they embark on their Pathway® journey.  Our services include:

  • Gap Analysis Consulting
  • Virtual Document Writing Workshops
  • Document Writing and Review
  • Virtual and Live Mock Site Visit Consulting.
