Nurse looks forward to opening of new Lake Forest hospital
Nurse clinician David Chilicki says the private rooms at the new Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital will be a big improvement for patients. Chilicki says the new, almost $400 million hospital, which is to open March 3 to replace Lake Forest Hospital, will give clinicians more time at the bedside.

RN finds value in continuing his nursing education
Peru, Ill., native and registered nurse Michael Gnidovec worked two jobs to get through nursing school and continued his education to get a master's degree from Rush University. Gnidovec said having a bachelor's degree made him marketable, and the skills he learned in the RN to BSN program at Illinois State University's Mennonite College of Nursing helped him be an effective leader.
