Tana Bolus was born in Louisville and raised in Floyds Knobs, Indiana. Upon graduation from Floyd Central High School she enrolled at Indiana University from which she graduated with distinction with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. She is licensed registered nurse in Kentucky and Indiana.
Tana was an emergency room nurse at Norton Audubon Hospital for over 20 years. She is a certified instructor in Advanced Cardiac Life Support at Norton Audubon, meaning she teaches physicians, nurses, and respiratory therapists how to perform emergency resuscitative efforts in situations where seconds literally count in terms of life or death for the patient. In addition, Tana was an experienced cardiac rehabilitation nurse having worked for Cardiovascular Associates for a number of years in the late 90s.
In 2010 Tana was honored with the Norton Healthcare Good Samaritan Award representing the pinnacle of recognition for service excellence at Norton (click here to view award). The award was in recognition of her efforts to introduce portable defibrillators into 5 Southern Indiana baseball parks with a grant obtained from Horseshoe Foundation and other donations. Just one week after introducing a defibrillator into the ballpark where her sons played, Tana, Dr. Tom Harris, CRNA Spring Harris, and Officer Shawn Kesling utilized the defibrillator to restart the heart of a 37 year old woman during ultimately life saving resuscitative efforts. Angel Glotzbach had collapsed watching her own son playing a game. Tana and her friend, Kristy Smith, a mother of three, have since raised additional money from Horseshoe Foundation and others to buy 30 additional defibrillators which they are presently in the process of introducing into the entire New Albany-Floyd County School System.
In 1996 Tana was certified as a Legal Nurse Consultant. She has performed comprehensive medical records reviews for Bolus Law Offices, and select other law firms, since then. Yes, she likes working with her husband. No, they do not always talk work at home, where most of their time is spent with their 4 sons.
Tana’s father, Russell Scott (1932-2009), practiced law in New Albany, Indiana for over 30 years and her mother Sharon, is a retired residential real estate agent living in Floyds Knobs.
