A patient recovering from a head injury in a neurological intensive care unit (ICU) might be surprised to learn that the nurses caring for him had little training in neuroscience beyond the typical four hours of lecture in nursing school. Some leading caregivers are trying to change that. Joanne V. Hickey, a neuroscience nurse scholar and clinical expert at the Methodist Neurological Institute in Houston, and Ann Quinn Todd, nursing director of the institute’s Eddy Scurlock Stroke Center, joined forces to organize the institute’s inaugural symposium on neurological nursing. More than 150 practitioners attended.
