MORE MEN MOVE TO NURSING CAREERS

Brian Medley, a nurse at Lurie Children’s Hospital, and Zain Rehman, a nurse at Advocate Christ Medical Center Intensive Care Unit, talked about their career path.

Nursing has historically been a female-dominated field, but men are increasingly pursuing the career. The percentage of men in nursing is still small, only about 9 percent to 10 percent,

A nursing career holds many advantages for men, such as highly diverse patient care environments, career stability, and a competitive salary.

Resurrection University will host a “Thinking Out Loud” speaker series for men, by men.

“Men in Nursing” is a free event that brings together a panel of male nursing professionals to talk about what it’s like to be a nurse in today’s healthcare environment

Health care jobs surge during recession

Iowa’s health care industry is about as close to being recession-proof as you can get.

Despite continuing structural and financial changes, it was the only Iowa industry to add significant numbers of new jobs during the recession.

State labor statistics show it added 5,500 jobs between May 2008 and December 2009. During the same period Iowa’s total nonfarm employment fell by 66,600. Since then, the Iowa economy has added back 34,100 jobs, including 4,300 in health care.

Although health care continues to add jobs, the types of jobs are changing as the industry is pulled and pushed by shifting demographics, new technology and cuts in government funding.

In the last year alone, Mercy Medical Center Des Moines saw its Medicaid payments reduced by $17.5 million, while the hospital’s Medicare payments have been cut by $9 million over the last three years, said Joseph LeValley, Mercy’s senior vice president of planning and advocacy.

Those and other cuts are pushing more hospital procedures down to the outpatient and clinic level, areas where the employment growth is occurring, LeValley said.

Mercy opened its first clinic in the Des Moines area 20 years ago and now has 40 metro-area clinics, he said.

Iowa Hospital Association spokesman Scott McIntyre agreed that most hospitals are not adding jobs, although they are typically among the largest employers in their local communities.

Iowa’s 118 hospitals employ about 69,000 people, McIntyre said, although statewide there are about 2,000 fewer hospital jobs now than in 2008.
New medical jobs are created daily

One area where an explosion of employment is just beginning, McIntyre said, is med tech record keeping. Most doctors are just beginning to convert patient records and billing procedures from handwritten to digital text that can be stored electronically.

“People who know the new (government billing) rules and the technology will be very sought after,” McIntyre said.

Along with hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities are also major employers. About 55,000 Iowans work for them, according to the Iowa Health Care Association, which represents for-profit and nonprofit nursing homes.

“We’ve seen small growth in nursing facilities, but larger growth in assisted living and ancillary services,” said Steve Ackerson, executive director of the Iowa Health Care Association.

AORN Announces Legislative Priorities for 2011

The Association of periOperative Registered Nurses, (AORN), with a membership base of 40,000 RNs and representing the interests of 140,000 perioperative Registered Nurses in the U.S., has announced it will target seven states in 2011 to enact RN as Circulator. The perioperative RN, through professional and patient-centered expertise, is the primary patient advocate in the operating room and is responsible for monitoring all aspects of the patient’s condition. The presence of the RN in the circulating role throughout each surgical procedure is essential for timely delivery of quality surgical care and optimal patient outcomes.
The seven targeted states, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia, were identified following an interview-based survey of hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers by the AORN Advocacy leaders. Many of these states indicated a strong desire to assure patient safety through the use of an RN circulator for each patient during each surgery.

Iowa Nurses Offered Scholarships to Become Nursing Instructors

Iowa Student Loan, a private company that provides college loans, recently announced that they will be awarding $4,000 per year in grants to nurses who pursue advanced degrees.  Nursing leaders around the country are fearful of a nursing shortage in the years to come.  “If there are no teachers, there will be no students, which means less nurses to take care of all of us,” said Virginia Wangerin, president of the Iowa Nurses Association.  By enticing current nurses to pursue an advanced degree and become an instructor they will be able to educate more nurses in the years to come.

Nurses offered incentive to get jobs as instructors

Iowa nurses are being offered a new incentive to return to school and become nursing instructors.

Iowa Student Loan, a private company that provides college loans, announced Tuesday that it would offer grants of $4,000 per year for nurses who pursue advanced degrees. To qualify, nurses must be teaching nursing courses or planning to do so.

Nursing leaders foresee a nurse shortage, and they say the biggest problem is a lack of college instructors. “If there are no teachers, there will be no students, which means less nurses to take care of all of us,” said Virginia Wangerin, president of the Iowa Nurses Association.
