Editor-in-Chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the April issue of the American Journal of Nursing. On this month’s cover, a young boy witnesses the aftermath of severe flash flooding in Clendenin, West Virginia, in June 2016. Our first CE, “Original Research: Identifying Hospitalized Patients at Risk for Harm: A Comparison of Nurse Perceptions vs. Electronic Risk Assessment Tool Scores” studied how an electronic risk assessment tool compared with nurses’ judgment in identifying patients at risk. In our second CE, “Overactive Bladder in Women,” the authors provide an evidence-based review of the screening, assessment, and management of overactive bladder in women. Our next article, “Climate Change and Mental Health,” examines the likely effects of climate change on mental health and well-being, and discusses these impacts, their mechanisms of action, the unique vulnerabilities of some populations, and the need to build resilience. In “Professional Development: How to Engage Funders and Get Money: the 10 Rs You Need to Know,” the senior adviser for nursing at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation shares tips to help nurses effectively raise funds for their research or organization. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
