In line with other professions, nursing should offer a range of career paths to suit the differing needs of its members. There should be opportunities for nurses who have both the ability and the commitment to make rapid career progress. This article describes a fast-track, staff nurse D-E grade development programme for junior nurses. The programme has been introduced in an acute teaching trust with the aim of improving career opportunities and contributing to the delivery of quality care for patients.
