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.

Celebrating Nurses Week

As part of National Nurses Week, the thousands of nurses employed by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) and local health departments across the state are working to spread an important message to all Kentuckians about preventive health - it’s time to get serious about physical activity, nutrition and saying no to tobacco.

Nurses Week, which was created to promote the important role of nurses in American health care and government, will be observed this year May 4–8 around the country as a way to honor the contribution of nurses to health care, the delivery of clinical services, nursing and health education, public health and health policy. In addition to a week of continuing education and staff promotional events, nurses on staff at CHFS also wanted to use the observance as a platform to help educate Kentuckians about various ways to sustain long-term health.

Bid to Organize Nurses Faces Setback in Congress

The battle has ground on for 20 years. In 1989 and again in 1994, a clear majority of nurses at a Louisville, Ky., hospital signed cards saying they wanted a union. But each time a majority of the nurses later voted down the idea when it was put to a secret ballot.

Organized labor points to the fight at Norton Audubon Hospital as proof that America’s labor laws need to be overhauled: judges ruled that management had prevailed by illegally intimidating and firing nurses.

Nurses who want a union plan to try again, and they had expected a Democratic president and Congress to retool labor laws to make it easier to win. Instead, in Louisville and around the country, organized labor may be facing a major setback in the most contentious fight over labor laws since the 1940s.

Ky. unionization petition withdrawn

After 15 years of trying to organize a new union election, the Nurses Professional Organization has withdrawn its petition for a union vote at 268-bed Norton Audubon Hospital, Louisville, Ky.

Administrators at the hospital celebrated the National Labor Relations Board’s March 13 decision to accept the petition by the nurses’ organization to withdraw its election request. “We were very confident that they would not have won,” interim President and Chief Nursing Officer Jane Carmody said of the union supporters. “Lots of times a union will file an (unfair labor practice) or withdraw petitions if they don’t think they’ll win.”

Nursing Student Sues UofL Over Blog-Related Dismissal

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Nina Yoder admits her MySpace weblog might be somewhat vulgar, profane, and in some cases, inappropriate to some. But, the former UofL nursing student said Friday she doesn’t believe her personal views or statements should be grounds to expel her from school.

“I consider it to be satire, humor, a way for me to deal with daily situations,” she said.

Kentucky: Aspiring LPNs accused of cheating on NLN exams

PN students at Gateway Community and Technical College, Edgewood, KY, are being forced to retake their National League for Nursing (NLN) exit exams after two classmates reportedly claimed some may have cheated.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, college officials have voided the “unusually high test scores” from the Nov. 1 exam, which was to be the last test prior to the licensure exam for 28 aspiring LPNs after a year and a half of studies. The tests are used by the NLN, a New York-based organization that develops and provides comprehensive services to the nursing workforce, to gauge students’ preparedness to take the NCLEX-PN.

The Enquirer reported that no one would be disciplined and that college officials were unable to determine how students may have received answers prior to taking the test, as was reportedly claimed by the students. Those who do not retake the exam will not be eligible to graduate this winter.
