The dedication may have been delayed, but students have wasted no time in making use of the new Olive View-UCLA Medical Center Nursing Education Center in Sylmar. The 200,000-square-foot, $1.3-million facility has been open since April, but rainy weather forced repeated postponements of dedication ceremonies. Supervisor Mike Antonovich and other county officials were on hand at the center Wednesday morning, when the ribbon-cutting finally took place at the two-story, modular building.

Over the last two years, I have spent a significant amount of time in hospitals in L.A. and Chicago because of medical crises with various members of my extended family. And no matter how well- or little-known these hospitals are, one fact remains the same across the board: You know a good nurse the minute she/he walks into the room. Good nurses in a hospital make me weak in the knees. For starters, they smile at their patients with the implicit understanding that you are members of the same species.

Esther Lucile Brown, 92, a social anthropologist whose landmark 1948 study "Nursing for the Future," was credited with major changes in nursing education and service. In a series of three books she emphasized the importance of individual attention to patients while suggesting that nursing schools be administered and financed by institutions of higher learning, a common practice today. Before and during World War II she helped place scores of refugees from Nazi Germany in American universities.

Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy G. Thompson said Monday that he is asking Congress for additional money for nursing education, and he pledged to put his energy behind funding that the American Nurses Assn. says it needs to inject the profession with new blood. Thompson also announced the creation of the National Nurses Response Team, a nationwide mobilization similar in concept to the National Guard, to respond to bioterrorism or disease outbreaks.

Dawson, who admits that he fatally shot his ex-wife outside her El Toro home, is an "extremely assertive individual . . . the type of person who may act with little control or forethought," a psychologist testified Monday. Dawson listened intently as psychologist Donald K. Smith described him as someone who might "trample" on other people's feelings but later would feel remorse and deep regret.

Pete Nguyen has friends graduating with MBAs and PhDs, but they are struggling to find work in a sluggish job market. His own job search, though, was hardly a roll of the dice. Armed with a degree in pharmacy, he had so many job offers that he and three friends from the University of Michigan pharmacy school focused mainly on where they wanted to live, settling on Las Vegas. "When we were thinking about what city to go to and where to move to--New York, L.A.

On a single day this month, Linda Butcher treated two medical cases, conducted several hundred eye tests, supervised dental exams at a school, taught a first-aid seminar for teachers and was home in time for dinner. For Butcher, the only nurse for the Oxnard school district's 13,000 children, it was a typical day. "You should see it when I get busy," Butcher said from behind stacks of paper in her Oxnard office. "Any day can blow up on you."
