U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., toured classrooms, a new simulation lab and other areas of the newly-renovated Jefferson Regional Medical Center School of Nursing Monday before offering high praise to administrators, instructors and students.

Lincoln described the facility as “the result of years of hard work and collaboration between JRMC and public officials.”

“It’s a perfect example of what we can do when we work together,” she said.

She added that JRMC’s willingness to provide the “brick and mortar” investment made it easier to secure federal dollars.

Nursing Student Receives National Recognition For Clinical Study

Emily Coombs, a master’s student in the Eleanor Mann School of Nursing at the University of Arkansas, recently won a $500 scholarship at the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists in St. Louis.

Coombs, a staff nurse at Mercy Medical Center in Rogers, won the award for her poster presented at the association’s annual meeting in March about a study of universal screening for the methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Coombs created a poster for her independent study project based on her work with Mercy Medical Center’s Intensive Care Unit and infection preventionist.

Nationwide, hospitals are looking for strategies to reduce the spread of the organism, which has become resistant to many antibiotics, Coombs explained of the team effort.

“One recommended way to do this is universal screening of all patients followed by special precautions for those found to be infected,” she said. “This is usually started in an area of the hospital where patients are more vulnerable, such as the intensive care unit.”

Hayes Olson, the Development Director, says they have seen record enrollment numbers for this Spring.

The facility includes classrooms, computer lab, seminar room, state-of-the-art nursing skills lab, offices and conference rooms.
