Professional Advancement While Serving (PAWS)


Nurses awarded for achievements in professional development
In conjunction with National Nurses' Week, dozens of University of Missouri Health Care nurses were recognized for their professional development at an awards breakfast.

Seventy nurses were honored for attaining Professional Advancement While Serving (PAWS) status. To achieve the status, nurses must reach certain benchmarks in advanced training and certification, peer support and protocol enhancement.

Depending on achievement, nurses were awarded either black or gold status. Those who attained black status received a check for $2,500 and those who reached the gold level received $5,000.
