RN Resource Nurse Recognition Program

UAMS Nursing believes that improved patient outcomes are a result of highly skilled professional nurses who are self-motivated to continue learning, empowered to improve nursing care quality and dedicated to furthering the nursing profession. In addition to the Clinical Ladder, which differentiates levels of Registered Nurse practice, the PNO Resource Nurse Recognition Program addresses continued excellence by those nurses who remain in clinical positions delivering direct patient care.

Another purpose of the program is to also reward professional nurses for their continual advancement and professional development as direct patient care providers receive (up to $2000 (pre-taxed) every nine months based on evaluation/criteria).  For more detailed information regarding the Resource Nurse Program, contact
