Editors' Remarks


Dear Colleague,

Welcome to the American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners!


The newly formed American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AAENP) has adopted the AENJ as their official journal. Both AENJ and the AAENP seek to promote high quality, evidence-based care so this relationship is a natural fit. There are many opportunities for collaboration and mutual gain which will translate into improved resources for ENPs and improved care for patients.

Members will have free on-line access to AENJ as a benefit of membership and may also subscribe the print journal at a deeply discounted rate.  AAENP Founder, Elda Ramirez, is a long-time AENJ board member and AENJ Editor, K. Sue Hoyt, is now an AAENP board member so our collegial relationship is well established.

If you're an ENP who doesn't already belong to AAENP, you can see what you're missing at www.aaenp-natl.org.

Sue and Jean

SUGGESTIONS 2017-11-20

"A Cluster of Cases"
from CanadiEM's
Arts PRN series


An interesting and exciting way of improving our observational and diagnostics skills is the series of Arts PRN paintings presented by the excellent website canadiem.org. Editor Tetyana Maniuk from University of Ottawa, with Leah Zhao from McMaster University, and Chitbhanu Singh from University of Saskatchewan, present classic art and challenge us to find observable pathology and make a diagnosis. Supportive data are provided.

Arts PRN Gallery is your starting point.

I think it an admirable project. It reminds us that art "is to hold, as 'twere, the mirror up to nature." As "The proper study of mankind is man", we should master the findings of observation and measurement that teach us the pathology against which we contend. It is easy in the press of work to focus on the science and omit to actively enjoy art. I hope this series has long life and popularity. Congratulations, canadiem!
