Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Managing Editor Karen Roush present the highlights of the December issue of the American Journal of Nursing. A photo of a thirteen year-old girl with a trained therapy dog appears on this month’s cover, relating to our article on family pet visitation and a piece called “One Health at Kansas State University.” Our first CE this month is an original research about nurses’ willingness to work during an H1N1 pandemic. The second CE discusses HIV and foot care management, providing nurses with tools to diagnose and treat peripheral neuropathy. A cultivating quality article called “Quiet at Night” explains a hospital-wide initiative to decrease nighttime noise that disturbs patients. In addition, our issue includes News, In Our Community, a special three-part Reflections column this month, Viewpoint, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.

Should there be an influenza pandemic, hospitals will need to rely on their employees who may be fearful for their own health or spreading the illness to families. In this study, research Sharon Martin and colleagues report on a survey of Maine nurses and their willingness to report to work and what factors might influence them to do so. Some of her results are surprising. AJN’s editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy discusses the ramifications of her findings and what nurse administrators need to keep in mind.
