AAMC Nurses present at MNA Conference

AAMC Nurses present at MNA Conference

“Every nurse is a leader” was the theme of the  Maryland Nurses Association 113th Annual Conference  held at the Martime Institute in Linthicum Heights, Maryland, from October 14-15.  The conference focused on how nurses serve as leaders across the continuum of the profession. This is certainly true at AAMC, where nurses working with their quality councils have lead significant improvements in the quality of nursing care.

This year, three groups of nurses proudly presented their quality improvement projects at the Convention. Christine Gates, RN-BC, presented a poster on her Bedside Scientist funded quality improvement project on reducing anxiety in pediatric patients requiring a CT scan.  Mary Hantske, MSN, RNC-OB, also presented a poster on her Bedside Scientist funded quality improvement project on immersion bathing along with June Brouse, MSN, RNC-MNN. Lastly, Cathaleen Ley, PhD, RN, presented a poster on AAMC’s Journal Club (see table below).

    Great Job! On Mother Baby the Bedside Scientist Grants have supported numerous evidence based practice changes and quality improvement/safety projects. It’s great to have support!
