Chicago faces challenge in hiring certified school nurses
The Chicago School District has committed to hiring more school nurses and having a nurse in every school, but there may not be enough certified school nurses to accomplish that goal. The district will hire licensed practical nurses and registered nurses and provide ways they can become certified school nurses.

CRNAs provide care in a variety of practice settings
Certified registered nurse anesthetists provide anesthesia care in different practice settings and can also be responsible for chronic pain management, said Passavant Area Hospital CRNA Matt Bednarchik. "Nurse anesthetists apply the same high standards of care, regardless of the type of procedure and the setting in which the anesthesia is delivered," said CRNA Mike Dunseth, who also works at Passavant.

With these tools in hand, you can set yourself up for a gratifying and positive career ahead. We will cover a variety of topics that the new nurse today needs to be aware of and capable of handling.
