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

Norfolk nursing campus fills a growing need

NORFOLK, Neb. — A new bachelor’s degree nursing program offered here has given Kari Uhlir a new chance to pursue a postponed dream.

After she graduated from Battle Creek High in 1992, Uhlir — then Kari Schmode — headed off to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to pursue a health care career. She declared a pre-med major and worked part time as a certified nurse’s aide at Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital.

But life took her on a different path — one that led to a move back home to northeast Nebraska and to marriage and motherhood.

Uhlir is now pursuing a nursing degree from the Northern Division of the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing.

On May 3, the first class of 26 students will graduate from the Norfolk program, helping to address a looming shortage of nurses in Nebraska.

After their first child was born, Uhlir and her husband, Todd, moved to Norfolk. He took over as manager of a family-owned Burger King restaurant in town.

Uhlir enrolled at a nursing college in Sioux City, Iowa, about 75 miles away. She withdrew before starting classes because the drive would take too much time away from her infant daughter.

Uhlir

Three more children came along as the years passed. Always, the thought hovered about nursing school. Always, the dream seemed just beyond her reach.

Uhlir, now 38, said she could hardly believe it when community leaders started talking several years ago about raising funds to enable UNMC to establish a College of Nursing campus in Norfolk.

It wasn’t that she doubted her community could make it happen — she’s seen how people in the counties surrounding Norfolk can pull together.

“It was just the thought ‘Can I actually do what I want to do?’ “ she said. “Something clicked inside me.”

Eventually more than 350 private donors contributed nearly $12 million — the full cost of the new building, which is on the Northeast Community College campus and is shared by the community college’s associate degree nursing program.

The building is named in honor of J. Paul and Eleanor McIntosh, who donated an undisclosed amount in excess of $1 million toward its cost.

Guests to be invited to the May graduation ceremony will include the hundreds of people who contributed to the cause, said Liane Connelly, assistant dean in charge of the program.

The med center spends less than $1 million a year on salaries for 13 faculty and five staff and for shared maintenance costs.

The Norfolk-based school is part of the med center’s strategy to address a looming shortage of nurses in Nebraska.

Even though the number of nurses graduating from 16 nursing education programs in the state of Nebraska increased significantly in the past decade, health care experts say the increase is not enough to keep up with future demands.

Rural areas already face nursing shortages. The Center for Nursing reports that as of 2008, 28 low-population counties had fewer than half the nurses they needed.

When it opened in 2010, the Northern Division became the med center’s fifth nursing campus. Others are in Scottsbluff, Kearney, Lincoln and Omaha.

By locating nurse education programs across the state, the medical center hopes to encourage new nurses to live and work in their home communities.

(University of Nebraska officials earlier this year asked the Legislature to approve funds to build new nurse education facilities in Lincoln and Kearney. The Legislature approved spending $15 million to expand the Kearney campus but did not allocate money toward the Lincoln expansion.)

The nursing campus strategy is working, according to several students interviewed at the Norfolk site.

Ashley Pokorny of Howells, Neb., who became interested in nursing after her father lost his hand in a farm accident when she was 4 years old, said she hopes to get a job at a clinic in the area. She lived in Lincoln while completing her general education requirements at Southeast Community College.

“City life is nice, but I like Howells,” said Pokorny, who will graduate in May. “I don’t like stoplights.”

New nursing college opens in Norfolk

An effort to address a nursing shortage in northeast Nebraska has culminated in completion of an $11.9 million nursing college in Norfolk.

The J. Paul and Eleanor McIntosh College of Nursing on the Northeast Community College campus is the result of a partnership between Northeast and the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing. It is the only public-supported nursing college in northeast Nebraska.

“The addition of UNMC’s Northern Nursing Division will pay dividends for generations to come by addressing critical health care needs and giving our best and brightest the educational opportunities they need to be of service to others,” Nebraska Speaker of the Legislature Mike Flood of Norfolk said in a news release.

Flood has been credited with seeing the need for the college and building support for it.

Students will start classes in the 43,747-square-foot building this month. Some 32 students are now enrolled in Bachelor of Science nursing classes.

Nearly 400 students in nursing, basic nurse aide and medication aide are expected to attend classes in the new college.

The facility was built following a capital campaign that ended in May 2009 after Norfolk philanthropists J. Paul and Eleanor McIntosh gave $1 million.

The college will house all of Northeast’s basic nurse aide, medication aide, practical nursing and associate degree nursing programs and the UNMC College of Nursing’s undergraduate and graduate-level programs.

Northeast classes start Monday, while UNMC classes start Aug. 23.

Faith Regional Health Services of Norfolk and other area hospitals and nursing homes will be clinical training sites for Northeast and UNMC nursing students.

The college will feature distance education classrooms, simulated medical office exam and hospital rooms, and patient simulators.Read Full Article
