History of PACE

Nursing

More than 30 years ago, the University Hospital of Arkansas – Department of Nursing, had a vision. That vision was expressed in a document that declared:

TOGETHER WE SET THE PACE: The Department of Nursing will be a Center of Excellence and the Community Role Model for the Practice of Professional Nursing.”

In 2010, the Executive Council of the Professional Nursing Organization (PNO) dusted off the PACE document and found that the vision for nursing remained. With some minor updating, the 2011 PACE document holds true to the tradition of excellence and the legacy of nursing at UAMS.

“Together we set the PACE to create a culture of nursing excellence.”
