Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy presents the highlights of the September 2011 issue of the American Journal of Nursing, which features acknowledgement of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks: a cover painting by artist and nurse Charles Kaiman, a guest editorial and a special report interviewing several nurses whose lives were changed by the events of 9/11. There are also two CE articles: one is original research on patients’ experiences with blood transfusions, and the other is a case study on managing pediatric suicide in the ED. Other articles include a QI piece on establishing a unit-based nurse resource program in a community hospital, a column examining patient privacy in social media, and the final installment in our EBP, Step-by-Step series; plus News, Drug Watch, Reflections and more. There’s also podcasts with authors Veenema (guest editorial), Kaiman (cover artist), and Alexis Schmid and Frances Damian, two of the coauthors of the pediatric suicide CE article.
