Durham Relishes Role in Surgery, Education at Jennie Edmundson

Jennifer Durham has spent 12 years as a surgery nurse at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital, where robot technology has recently helped enhance the work of surgeons.

In March of 2019, the hospital started using the DaVinci XI surgical robot, with surgeons operating robotic arms on procedures.

“It is really amazing,” Durham said. “So precise.”

As an educator, Durham assists in the integration of research into Jennie Edmundson operations.

“I educate and guide staff in the use of evidence-based practices,” she said. “I don’t necessarily do the research myself, but I go through research, collaborate with other educators and integrate the best research practices into our area.”
