North Florida Regional is committed to providing a practice setting for professional staff in which excellence and expertise are recognized and rewarded. The Professional Advancement for Clinical Excellence (PACE) Program is designed to attract and retain outstanding professional nurses who provide care within the professional practice model.These efforts are directed toward improving healthcare for our community, enhancing the mission of our organization, and striving for personal and professional growth.

Registered nurses who meet the eligibility requirements are invited to participate in the PACE Program. In addition to the basic registered nurse designation, the PACE Program has developed three levels (RN I, RN II and RN III) of designation requiring various degrees of clinical expertise and commitment to healthcare excellence in the community. Upon attainment of each designation in the PACE Program the nurse candidate will be eligible for bonus payments based on their level of achievement.
