Greetings, and welcome to the PONE! As President of this Chapter, I am honored to bring this region to bear as an up-and-coming hub for nursing excellence. Based in the capital city of Tallahassee, PONE currently serves the entire northwestern expanse of Florida, which also includes Destin, Panama City, and Pensacola. 2017 finds us with a new leadership team, and we are working on a progressive skill-based initiative to identify and recruit active, ambitious members. We are ready to bring nursing in Florida to be the best in the country. Please feel free to reach out to me personally with any questions, ideas, or feedback on our chapter, and stay tuned; this will be an exciting year for PONE. Thank you.
