4 Snapshots of Excellence snapshots Edmonson named CNO of Texas Health Dallas Cole Edmonson, MS, RN, FACHE, NEA-BC, has been named vice president of Patient Care Services and chief nursing officer at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. Cole joins Texas Health Dallas from Medical City Dallas, where he served as the CNO and vice president of nursing. Cole s leadership skills, vast experience and passion for nursing will help us achieve our mission to improve the health of the people in the communities we serve, says. Britt Berrett, PhD, president of Texas Health Dallas. Edmonson s work at Medical City included direct management of seven service lines, including heart, cancer, surgery, orthopedics and neurosciences, and clinical responsibility for women and children s services. As the Magnet Program Coordinator, he successfully led Medical City to become the 1st hospital in North Texas recognized as a Magnet facility. Under his leadership, the hospital was also the first in North Texas to be re-designated a Magnet facility. I m delighted to join the Texas Health Dallas team and look forward to building on the great successes the nursing staff here has already achieved, Edmonson says. I m humbled to work alongside these nurses who are inspiring examples of what it means to practice the art and science of nursing in a professional environment. Cole is an outstanding nurse executive, and we re proud to have him join our team, says Joan Shinkus Clark, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, CENP, FACHE, FAAN, senior vice president and Texas Health chief nurse executive. He will no doubt provide great leadership to the nurses of Texas Health Dallas, and we also look forward to his leadership within our Chief Nurse Executive team with Texas Health Resources. Jennifer Gray named Piper Professor Jennifer Gray, PhD, RN, associate professor and associate dean at The University of Texas at Arlington, has been awarded the Piper Professor Award. The award annually recognizes 15 outstanding college professors across Texas. College of Nursing Dean Elizabeth Poster, PhD, RN, FAAN, says, As an associate dean and chair, she has provided leadership to the College of Nursing that contributes to our reputation of excellence. Gray says, I do not go to other countries as an expert- rather I go as a partner and a fellow learner. Approaching people in their culture with respect and curiosity creates connections that facilitate learning- am approach that works equally well for nurses in Uganda and students in Arlington. Working with patients and nurses in Africa energizes me and makes me more sensitive to culture in all settings. In collaboration with Allusine Jalloh, director of UT Arlington s Africa Program, Gray is leading the North Texas Africa Health Initiative. She travels to Uganda each Jennifer Gray, PhD, RN, summer to develop the research capacity of nurses and provide inservice education for nurses in rural areas. Endoscopy nurse honored by gastroenterology nursing society SGNA President Terrie Vos, MS BSN RN CGRN (left) and Warner Chilcott representative Scott Docherty (right) present the Proud to be GI Award to winner Kathryn Vance, RN (center) at the Gala Awards Banquet. Kathryn Vance, RN, endoscopy resource nurse at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest Fort Worth, was selected among gastroenterology (GI) and endoscopy nurses and associates nationwide to receive a special award from the Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates, Inc. The 2010 National Proud to be GI Award recognizes an individual who exemplifies the qualities noteworthy in the role of the GI nurse or associate based on excellent leadership, communication, teamwork, task management, and mentoring. As a department supervisor, Kat works with a wide range of disciplines and skill levels, but makes every member of the team feel valued, says Katherine Rhodes, RN, BSN, COHN-S, CIC, infection prevention coordinator, who nominated Vance for the award. Procedures are handled with military precision, yet her warmth and sense of humor embody compassion. Vance, a 25-year nurse with four years of endoscopy experience, helped provide guidance and expertise for the $1.7 million expansion and renovation of the hospital s endoscopy suite in Under her nursing leadership, the hospital has introduced two new advanced endoscopic and GI procedures: endobronchial ultrasound, a minimally invasive technique for diagnosing lung cancer; and cryoablation, a method of removing abnormalities in the airway with a reduced risk of complication. Both procedures, which can eliminate a patient s need for surgery, are unique to Texas Health Southwest. I never expected accolades in return for taking good care of our patients, Vance says of her national award. To have my work acknowledged this way is heartwarming. Our goal is to provide the safest, most comfortable environment we can provide for our patients. Teamwork and compassion go hand in hand to reach that goal.

5 snapshots snapshots ill babies during delivery. This one-of-a-kind team is a concept now adopted by many hospitals across the country. Delivering a critically ill baby is a parent s worst nightmare but these nurses make sure newborns receive the best possible care. Having a dedicated, specialized team of nurses at Parkland is crucial to ensuring low infant mortality and a high quality of life for these little patients, says Jennifer Hill, unit manager of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. In 2009, the team responded to 3,511 resuscitation calls. The precise and timely interventions provided by these nurses have led to lower rates of CPR and lower use of medication during resuscitations, both of which ultimately leads to healthier lives for each newborn. recently honored Medical Center of McKinney for being one of the top 20 donor hospitals in the Dallas/Fort Worth and east Texas area. Last year, through the efforts of Medical Center of McKinney s compassionate staff, 10 tissue and eye donations occurred. The Transplant Center works with 178 hospitals across the region on donations. It takes a truly dedicated and compassionate staff to talk with family members regarding their loved one s choice to donate, says Helen Marshall, RN, UT Southwestern Transplant Outreach Coordinator.

Back row, left to right: Claire Corley, John Vo, John Green, Mike Lopez, Mike Seifu, Kimberley Petty The nurses at Las Colinas Medical Center, through the Nurse Practice Council, a peer-elected group of nurses representing all nursing departments, chose to donate, for the benefit of their community, the monies that would have normally been spent on Nurse s Week gifts for every nurse. Realizing the struggles that many people in the community are facing in these tough economic times, these nurses, in the true spirit of nursing, wanted to care for those who were, at this time in their life, less fortunate than themselves. In the words of Florence Nightingale,...one s feelings waste themselves in words, they ought all to be distilled into actions which bring results, and results are just what these nurses produced by replacing their would-be gifts with a donation of $2,000 to Irving Cares, a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting Irving residents experiencing temporary hardship by providing a food pantry, financial assistance, patient transportation, employment services programs, medical prescriptions and more.

6 snapshots Texas Health wins three national patient safety and risk management awards Texas Health Resources captured three of six national 2010 Premier Patient Safety and Risk Management awards, which were presented yesterday in Washington, D.C. These awards bring recognition to three very deserving initiatives, says Douglas D. Hawthorne, FACHE, CEO of Texas Health. Patient safety and risk management are two of our top priorities, and I am proud of each and every staff member who has contributed to important patient safety initiatives like these. Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth was honored with a $10,000 prize for The Breath of Life: Using Bubble CPAP to Decrease Chronic Lung Disease in Premature Infants. Bubble CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) is a type of respiratory support used to deliver airflow and pressure to an infant s lungs via short prongs in the nose. The system has helped improve respiratory outcomes for babies born prematurely whose lungs are underdeveloped. The average length of hospital stays for these infants decreased by six days. shine It s time to a light on your career. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano received a $10,000 award for Addressing Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Patients at Risk for Post-Surgical Complications. Patients with sleep apnea have an increased risk of breathing difficulties after surgery. In order to better identify patients who may not realize they have the condition, Texas Health Plano developed a program to screen patients in pre-operative areas for obstructive sleep apnea. The hospital also shared the screening practice with other hospitals throughout the Texas Health system. As a result, Texas Health hospitals have consistently increased identification of patients at risk for breathing problems after surgery and decreased the incidence of post-operative respiratory failure. The Texas Health Resources system was awarded a $5,000 prize for the Patient Safety Direct Observations Program. This innovative program uses a patient safety observation methodology adapted from the nuclear power industry, which is known for its reliability principles and error-reduction in a highly complex environment. The methodology has been used broadly across THR hospitals to help gain an independent assessment of compliance with a variety of patient safety processes. Since the Patient Safety Direct Observations Program began six years ago, THR has seen a steady reduction in errors and an increase in patient safety within the Texas Health system.

8 six-year move Managing Unit Relocations: Not the usual shipping and handling How many nurses does it take to move two units into a new building? The nurses at Medical City Children s Hospital have spent the last six years discovering the answer to that question. The hospital will open a new four-story tower this June, adding an additional 109,000 square feet to the children s facilities. The new building will house a Congenital Heart Surgery Unit (CHSU), a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and 21 Day Surgery/Outpatient rooms, with a PICU and hematology/oncology unit coming in It turns out to be a trick question, though. To successfully and smoothly move patients into a new building takes more than just a nurse count. It requires years of planning between nurses, contractors, and administrators. Before the patients can be moved in, the rooms and equipment must be properly placed, and the staff must be familiar with the new placement of equipment and supplies before the first patient is wheeled over the threshold. Pictured above, from Medical City Children s Hospital s Congenital Heart Surgery Unit (left to right): Janie Garza, RN, unit supervisor; Laurie Dunkin, BSN, RN, unit supervisor; and Patsy Snider BSN, RN, CCRN unit manager. What one piece of advice would you give to other nursing units preparing to relocate? Staying organized; good communication with the members of the team; prepping as many items as possible ahead of time. Also, stay focused! And never forget to be kind to each other - it takes every single person to make it a success. Janie Garza, RN Congenital Heart Surgical Unit Supervisor Plan ahead. We have a wonderful leader that has planned for this move for years now. Her organization has kept us all on track and I feel like it will go smoothly because of her strong leadership. Melody Roeder, BSN, RN Congenital Heart Surgical Unit Supervisor Tackling this monumental task for MCCH is Patsy Snider, BSN, RN, CCRN, Congenital Heart Surgery Unit Manager, who has been helping plan the CHSU move since It has been a long time coming for our team! The planning was a huge interdisciplinary effort which made planning a bit complicated but definitely worth it in the long run. We have collaborated with our Pediatric Educator Michelle Creech to plan a vendor fair the week before we open. Staff will be allowed to check off and gain confidence in new equipment and familiarize themselves with our new home by doing scavenger hunts. We have been lucky in that we have been able to obtain some of our vital bedside tools that our nurses and physicians depend on at the bedside in advance. One item in particular is a bedside cart that has needed supplies to make the job of an ICU nurse much easier. The staff at the bedside has had the opportunity to voice what they want in these carts and the organization of them. Having the bedside RN feedback in this transition is vital in making sure the staff feels like they have ownership in our new home! If we do it right the first time by gaining their feedback, the transition will be so much smoother. The following week, we will put the training into action by having a series of mock scenarios that can and do occur in our Congenital Heart Surgery Unit, like ECMO initiation and other emergency bedside procedures. We will be testing routes to and from the OR, Cath lab, and Radiology to ensure the safest route for our patients. We will also ensure that other departments are aware of our location by conducting a series of mock drills that would require other departments to respond to our unit in the new tower. As a leader and the one who is responsible for a successful move for your staff, immerse yourself in the process and plan, plan, plan. The more you plan and know about the processes involved, the more natural the move will be. The leader of the unit really sets the tone for move so it is very important to be organized, calm and in control. Patsy Snider, BSN, RN, CCRN Congenital Heart Surgery Unit Manager Remember that your biggest asset is your TEAM. We have conquered all this planning with the creation of nursing task forces that have nurses who are passionate about the move to our new unit. We utilize each nurse s strength to its fullest, whether it is creativity, organization, or spirit-building. We are a strong team because of our collective attributes. Laurie Dunkin, BSN, RN Congenital Heart Surgical Unit Supervisor Snider is no stranger to relocating units. She has moved four ICU units in her career. I am familiar with the in s and out s of what it takes to have a successful move. Despite this, each time I have come across something new and unexpected. The most challenging part for me thus far has been patience with the construction process. As often happens in new construction, completion dates can vary. I have been challenged to find creative solutions in order to feel like our team is still making forward progress with the things that we needed to accomplish, even when the dates change. For Snider, as for most nurses involved in the moving process, the reward is the final fulfillment of a task six years in the making. While the new facilities represent years of planning and work, they also offer the promise of improved care and access for patients, their families, and the staff. The unit set up is very open and visible from the MD/Nurses Station, says Snider. Each of our rooms is about 300 square feet or more and has a clinical area that is set up a lot like an OR. We have surgical arms with two monitor screens. We are able to position a patient s bed any way we need to depending on the patient situation. In the back of the room, we have a family area so the family can be comfortable in the room with the patient, without having their belongings potentially in the way of patient care. Ultimately, the years of planning and inter-departmental cooperation still require a strong nursing team to complete the process. I am honored to direct my team of nurses, says Snider. Their dedication and passion for our patient population makes my job easy. NL T E X Award For Performance Excellence Your destination is clear. Our world-renowned Magnet facility is expanding!

9 advanced degrees Advance Your Career with an Advanced Degree Without a more educated nursing workforce, the nation s health will be further at risk. -Tri-Council for Nursing More than 32 million new patients are expected to enter the health care system soon. The expectations placed on nurses are evolving quickly to meet this new demand, and many nurses will have to evolve as well by pursuing an advanced nursing degree. Adding to the pressures placed on nurses by a growing patient population, the Tri-Council for Nursing, which includes the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, American Nurses Association, American Organization of Nurse Executives, and National League for Nursing, are calling for all registered nurses to advance their education in the interest of enhancing quality and safety across health care settings. Thinking about a BSN? As any RN conducting a job search can attest to, the BSN is becoming the preferred degree for RNs, especially as the role of RNs expands to include coordinating more care and making more critical decisions. To help you meet the medical field s changing expectations on nurses, many nursing schools and hospitals are expanding their educational programs, making it easier than ever for you to get your BSN or higher degree. According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing s (AACN) Your Nursing Career: A Look at the Facts, The BSN nurse is prepared for a broader role. The BSN nurse is the only basic nursing graduate preferred to practice in all health care settings -- critical care, ambulatory care, public health, and mental health -- and thus has the greatest employment flexibility of any entry-level RN. The BSN curriculum includes a broad spectrum of scientific, critical-thinking, humanistic, communication, and leadership skills, including specific courses on community health nursing not typically included in diploma or associate-degree tracks. These abilities are essential for today s professional nurse who must be a skilled provider, designer, manager, and coordinator of care. Nurses that have taken courses in management and leadership offer a robust skill set, says the AACN, and are viewed by nurse executives to be prepared to meet the more complex demands of today s patient care. Considering a Graduate Degree? The role of master s-prepared nurses will be changing soon. Many of the current nursing roles that require master s degrees will require doctorates, starting in 2015, which means there will be new roles for master s-prepared nurses, such as clinical nurse leaders, informatics, and administration, says Dean Paulette Burns, RN, PhD, Texas Christian University s Harris College of Nursing and Health Sciences. Paulette Burns, RN, PhD Which degree is right for you will depend a great deal on your personality and how you want to contribute to the nursing field. For example, Burns says the PhD and APN-prepared nurses are scientists and educators, whereas Doctors of Nursing Practice (DNP) take that research and look at how to apply it regularly in daily practice. This makes the DNP an excellent choice for those nurses who want to make contributions by applying new discoveries in the healthcare field. Before entering a program, cautions Burns, nurses should consider what kind of work they like to do and would like to do for a long time. There are many different directions one can go and different goals that can be achieved. Nurses should ask themselves, What do I want to contribute to nursing? In 2008, 36.8 percent of nurses held a bachelor s degree, compared to 22 percent in 1980, an increase of almost 60 percent. Source: Online or Face-to-face Programs? Online education has been around for over 25 years, and there have been numerous studies on their effectiveness. According to Burns, studies have shown that both types of programs are effective, offering excellent content and education, but with different outcomes. For example, online programs require more interaction with the instructors and classmates, while face-to-face classes allow students to sit and take notes without as much interaction. Burns alsol urges students to seek out assessments offered by the schools to see if the online environment is appropriate for the student s learning style. Already have a Degree? Many nursing programs recognize the wide variety of entry points for nurses, such as those who already hold a bachelor s or master s degree in a different field. For example, TCU has an accelerated program that offers a BSN in 15 months. You can find similar programs at the end of this article in Nurses Lounge s special list of Texas nursing schools. How to Find the Right Program How can you determine the quality of a nursing program? Elizabeth Poster, PhD, RN, FAAN, Elizabeth Poster, PhD, RN, FAAN dean of the UTA College of Nursing and president of the Texas Association of Deans and Directors of Professional Nursing Programs, stresses the importance of talking to other students about the quality of the content and how it is delivered: Do the students have to work to get good grades? Does the information delivery process allow for face to face communication with the professor and other students? Is the content engaging? What s Your Next Step? The most important step is the first one! Talk to your manager or supervisor to see what programs are available through your facility. NL 14 NURSES LOUNGE / Dallas-Fort Worth June
