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

Nurses have a hand in designing new orthopedic and spine treatment unit

Beginning Sunday, Pennsylvania’s leading orthopedic hospital will be offering patients more comfortable, quiet and efficient care as PinnacleHealth opens the doors to its 42-bed orthopedic and spine unit at Harrisburg Hospital.

“It’s going to be state of the art,” said Courtney Trulear, 27, of Harrisburg, a permanent charge nurse on the unit.

Trulear was part of a five-person team of nurses that met every two weeks for six months, sitting at a table with the construction crew poring over blueprints for the new unit.

“We talked about everything from where we wanted stuff located to the equipment we’d need,” Trulear said. She said the nurses told the construction crew what they wanted, and if they couldn’t do it, they’d explain why, “but for the most part, they just did it,” she said.

“We’re the ones who have to function on the floor, and we know what’s needed for best care of the patients,” Trulear said.

The team included nurses with more than 25 years experience, and two who had also been patients during knee replacements.

The result is a nursing suite that emphasizes patient comfort and nursing efficiency, Trulear said.

All the rooms are hotel-style private suites with natural lighting, spacious bathrooms, flat-screen cable TVs, customized furniture for joint-replacement and spine patients, and a pullout sofa bed for family and visitors.

“There’s a lot of anxiety going into a surgery,” Trulear said. “If the family can spend the night with you and be comfortable, that helps everybody, really.”

She said the family knows the patient best and can help nurses care for them better.

In addition to added comfort, the new design makes it easier for nurses to do their jobs, she said.

The normal controlled chaos and equipment clutter of a nursing suite is reduced by having storage for wheelchairs and walkers in every room.

The new rooms also have built-in bedside vital signs monitors, which reduces nurses hauling carts around.

In fact, Trulear said, “They are eliminating everything on wheels,” which cuts down on noise in the unit as well as physical wear on the nurses

“It’s going to be a time saver for the staff, and that gives more time for patient care,” she said.

Waiting rooms are tailored specifically to families of unit patients. Flat screens will offer regular updates on each patient’s progress through surgery and recovery, and there will be a separate room where families can talk with the doctor after surgery through a computer video connection.
