Our Journey to Nursing Excellence
Magnet Conference in Orlando
As an organization that is committed to nursing excellence, we have embraced the
use of nursing research and evidence-based practices to influence the way that we
conduct our work within nursing. We demonstrate our ability to meet the standards
for nursing care related to clinical competency and assessment, education, cultural
diversity and collaboration by using a performance measurement and improvement process.
In our organization, nurses are the vital link between receiving average care and
receiving excellent care. We are committed to hiring a nursing workforce that wants
to practice autonomously yet in collaboration with the healthcare team. Nurses who
want to improve their practice each day by asking the simple question of "why" are
the nurses we want filling our clinical center units.
To attract these well-educated and compassionate nurses to our organization, we
have established a number of programs to enhance nursing at UF Health Jacksonville. Some of
these programs include:
- Tuition reimbursement, support and encouragement for educational advancement.
- Professional recognition program that provides nurses with an avenue to receive
a monetary bonus for actively participating in the practice of nursing.
- A new nurse fellowship program designed to assist the new nurse with transitioning
into the role of a professional nurse. The program provides the new nurse with the
tools needed to demonstrate the core competencies required for the entry-level nurse
at UF Health Jacksonville.
- A critical care fellowship program for the promotion of our qualified medical-surgical
nurses desiring an opportunity for career advancement into an intensive care setting.
If you are interested in joining a team that is experiencing the excitement of moving
a nursing division to the highest level of quality in patient care and service,
