Dear Fellow Nurse Leaders,
The 2015 national Magnet conference occurs during the month of October in Atlanta, Georgia. Annually in support of our commitment to Magnet, JONA releases the regular October edition as well as a special Magnet Supplement. Through the support and collaboration of the ANCC, this year's Supplement is focused on Nursing Workforce . As nurse leaders, many of us are challenged with issues of quality and quantity related to staffing. Leaders at ANCC have selected a variety of articles to be reprinted in the Supplement to inform leaders about evidence in addressing a multitude of issues related to leading a complex workforce. Each attendee at the conference will receive a complimentary copy of the October edition of JONA as well as the 2015 Magnet Supplement.
Articles in the October edition of JONA include discussions about models of discharge care, the use of simulation in measuring the performance of competence in central line maintenance, the measurement of the value of certification in supporting quality and a study identifying the major predictors of patient falls.
The articles in the October edition also support nurse executives being more informed about workforce including an article identifying the perceptions of U.S. nurses about caring for Ebola patients and a study related to the incidence of bullying and the effectiveness of interventions by nurse managers.
You can reach me at email@example.com for email inquiries about topics and potential articles. I will see many of you at the 2015 National Magnet Meeting in Atlanta in October. Please come by the Wolters Kluwer booth during the vendor fair to meet representatives of our publisher and see the range of journals that are available to support you in your practice.
