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

Decker nursing school to add high-level training courses

Binghamton University’s Decker School of Nursing is offering two new courses that will help train nurses for the work force of tomorrow.

The Doctor of Nursing Practice and the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner programs will provide higher education to those who need it, said Decker Dean Joyce Ferrario.

The DNP program, which will be required by the American Association of Colleges and Nursing by 2015, will provide doctoral-level programming to students who have reached a master’s level education in nursing. The class will mostly be taken by nurse practitioners in 2010, but by 2011, it will be open students with a bachelor’s degree.

“We really needed to move in that direction so we can continue to meet the needs of primary care,” Ferrario said.

About 25 students are expected to be enrolled in the program for the fall semester, she said.

The psychiatric nursing program was designed to fill a definite need locally, because there are few practicing psychiatrists in the Southern Tier, Ferrario said.

“We absolutely need psychiatric nurse practitioners,” she said.

A few students were admitted into clinical courses of the program this semester. The two-year master’s program should have about 14 students by the fall.

Nursing covering more health care

Each year, Wendy Fletcher says, she and two partners see more than 5,000 patients at their practice in Morehead, Ky.
They are not doctors, but rather registered nurse practitioners who say they are able to increase access to health care and make it more affordable.

“None of us are trying to play doctor,” she said.

Battle brewing over nurse practitioners

With a busy practice specializing in women’s health, Melinda Staten of Louisville is an advanced registered nurse practitioner, not a doctor. And she doesn’t want to be one.

“We’re not trying to be doctors — we never have,” said Staten, one of about 3,700 such nurses in Kentucky with advanced training that allows them to practice independently. “If we’d wanted to be doctors, we would have gone to medical school.”

But the Kentucky Medical Association claims otherwise. It’s fighting proposed legislation that would lift some limits on the ability of nurse practitioners to prescribe medication and perform other, mostly routine tasks such as signing a child’s immunization certificate or certifying the need for employee sick leave.

Campbellsville University Names Nursing Building After the Late Jerry Bennett and Tom Smith

Jerry Bennett and Tom Smith were the heart and soul of Campbellsville University’s nursing program. The two men were honored yesterday when the Bennett-Smith Nursing Building was named for them as their families watched and remembered.

Campbellsville University President Michael V. Carter called the late members of the CU Board of Trustees as “two of the finest men I have ever known.”

He said, “We would not be in this building if it were not for the two of them. They were remarkable champions to see this building built and the program it houses. They knew nursing was a great fit to the mission of CU.”

Kentucky congressmen sound off about health care reform

As President Obama continues to promote his health care reform plan, here in Kentucky, the party lines are drawn. Kentucky Congressmen Hal Rogers and John Yarmuth are sounding off about the proposal.

Rogers says Obama’s plan would not lower health care costs and raise taxes, but Yarmuth says it would be the best thing to ever happen to small business owners, and that’s just the beginning.

It seems the pros and cons are endless for the president’s health care plan. Congressman Yarmuth says a variety of health care options would be a bonus for Kentuckians. “They could have a number of insurers or a government run option from which to choose. So that should bring their health care costs down,” says Congressman Yarmuth.
