Dear Fellow Nurse Leaders,
One of my goals in selecting manuscripts for publication in JONA is to identify research and evidence-based practice content that will influence nursing administrative practice and leadership in today's complex environment. The July/August edition is an excellent example of this goal in the range and applicability of findings.
Dr. George Velianoff, RN presents an overview of the challenges confronting nurse executives in leading population health models and the need for information technology solutions that meet the needs of patients and care providers in a variety of settings. This article is a good overview of the components of population health as it is unfolding for nurse leaders.
Articles addressing open visitation and the impact on patient experience, care re-design in acute care, the impact of flexible work arrangements and a discussion of barriers to adherence of central venous catheter guidelines are just some of the topics in this edition.
Registration is now open for the 2014 National Magnet Conference. JONA will again have a presence at the conference through the annual Magnet Supplement and distribution of our October edition to all attendees.
Registration is also open for the 2014 International Nursing Administration Research Conference (INARC) sponsored by CGEAN. The conference will be held in Dallas during November 12-15th. CEGEAN members have been good partners to JONA in supporting the dissemination of nursing administrative research.
I am always happy to respond to emails of inquiry or ideas regarding future manuscripts at email@example.com. If you have a project to be developed into a manuscript or a study to profile, I will discuss on email, the possible application to JONA or suggestions of other journals to pursue for your target audience. Thank you for your support of and interest in JONA.
Karen S. Hill, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, FACHE, FAAN
