From the Editor

The September/October of the JNPD is here, and it is packed with useful information for nursing professional development specialists and other practitioners. The issue starts with an editorial from Kari Schmidt, reminding us how important it is to keep current even as we seem busier than ever. Our excellent columns include the first in a three-part series on Nurse Residencies, and fresh angles in Administration and Simulation.  Feature articles include this issue’s CE selection from Unruh & Zhang about new nurse turnover and the factors affecting it.  Elledge describes an “Amazing Shift” exercise for new grads which shows that low-tech approaches to learning can still be meaningful. Mary Harper and colleagues present the results of the national ANPD Technology survey and the implications for practice. It will be interesting for you to read the results and see how your organization compares!  Fidyk, Ventura & Green describe their efforts to the quality of patient education by teaching nurses how to teach. On a clinical note, Hanik and colleagues present an interesting educational approach to improving attitudes toward patients with sickle cell disease.  We hope you enjoy this issue and find ideas you can use right away. 

Happy reading!

Susan L. Bindon, DNP, RN-BC Co-Editor

Are you a Clinical Nurse Specialist?

If so, we need you to stand up and be counted!

The National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists (NACNS) has partnered with other nursing organizations to fill the gap left by the retirement of HRSA’s national nurse survey. If you are a graduate of a clinical nurse specialist (CNS) program, we want to hear from and count you. Please complete our national survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CF56ZXM and share it with your CNS colleagues.

The survey is open until December 31, 2014 to all nurses who identify themselves as or who were educated CNSs.
