Editor-in-Chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the March issue of the American Journal of Nursing. On this month’s cover, Nam Ngo, RN, a volunteer with the American Red Cross, assists victims of Hurricane Matthew at a shelter in Fair Bluff, North Carolina. Our first CE, “Improving Outcomes for Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease: Part 2” addresses disease complications and treatment for kidney failure. In our second CE, “Defining and Understanding Pilot and Other Feasibility Studies,” the authors provide an overview of feasibility studies, including pilot studies, and explain the type of preliminary data they seek to provide in order to make larger, future studies more efficient and successful. Our next article, “Original Research: How to Create a Poster That Attracts an Audience,” identifies the design principles and content-specific attributes of a poster that improve the chance that attendees at a nursing conference would read it. “Writing for Publication: Step by Step: Becoming a Published Writer” is the first article in a new series designed to help nurses sharpen their writing skills; it offers suggestions for developing good writing habits and tips on getting started. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
