Mele Apana takes Sr. Joan's call-out for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Hawaiian 105 KINE morning co-host Mele Apana was called out by Sister Joan of Arc Souza, head of St. Francis School, after the Franciscan nun took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Tuesday, Sept. 23. Apana immediately accepted the challenge and took an icy soaking at the hands of Sister Joan who was assisted by students at Kalakaua Middle School the next day. Apana called out her radio co-host, Billy V, and poured a bucket over his head within minutes of her own baptism. Former University of Hawaii Wahine volleyball star Tita Ahuna, vice principal of Kalakaua Middle School, also took the challenge.

Servco Pacific Inc. (Servco) recently broke ground on construction of a new dealership located at 4464 ‘Ulu Maika Street on Kauai to be named Servco Auto Kauai. The dealership, currently named Servco Toyota Kauai, sells both Toyota and Subaru vehicles and is located at 4337 Rice Street. In 2015, it will move to its new, 12,000-square-foot location with 10 service bays, a car wash and more than 200 parking spaces. The new Servco Auto Kauai dealership will be located in an upcoming retail area in Lihue that includes Costco, Home Depot, and a new Safeway also currently under construction. 

“We have been looking to consolidate our showroom and service center, so starting fresh with a new facility was the best way to go,” said Glenn Inouye, Senior Vice President for Servco. “We are excited to be a part of this new retail destination that will be a hub of services for Lihue and its surrounding communities.”

Hawai‘i Pacific University Offers Military Corpsman Pathway to Bachelor’s of Nursing

Hawai‘i Pacific University Offers Military Corpsman Pathway to Bachelor’s of Nursing

 

As an extension to its noted nursing programs, Hawai‘i Pacific University has added a new pathway for military medical personnel who want to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

 

“The new pathway, the LVN/LPN or Military Hospital Corpsman (HM) to BSN Track, provides an opportunity for Hospital Corpsman to take a national standardized exam to demonstrate equivalence in training and education to a Licensed Vocational Nurse,” said Dr. Lynette Landry, dean of HPU’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences.

 

“This means that the Corpsman who passes the exam will be required to take courses that are equivalent to those required of an LVN/LPN who is seeking RN licensure,” said Landry. “For both LVNs and Corpsmen, there are now standardized exams that they can opt to take instead of our required courses.”

 

New Pain Management Guidelines Help Joint Replacement Patients

Kaiser Permanente Hawaii is working to improve pain management for joint replacement patients. New guidelines, developed by the state’s largest integrated health care organization, were recently published in Nursing Clinics of North America. The project looked at patients who were using opioids before surgery for pain relief and how opioid tolerance can result in poor pain management and delayed recovery. The findings were also presented at the national conference for the American Society of Pain Management Nursing earlier this month.

“Pain can reduce a patient’s desire and ability to get up and move following surgery,” said Kathleen Doi, APRN, MS, CNS, Pain Management Services. “Movement, especially following joint replacement, is critical to improving range of motion and being able to return to a home setting.”
