From the Online Editor

    We really like the idea of putting together collections of articles to assist our writers, and our journal, in becoming recognized as the source of information for trauma nursing.  With that in mind we created an injury prevention collection for the summer and made the content freely available to all.  Keeping in that mindset it seemed like a good idea to create and disseminate a collection focused on sports injuries for the fall.  We didn't have material to create a collection.

     Do you have any gridiron practices or experiences to share?  How about an article on removing the complex padding and protective equipment in a safe and efficient manner?  I know that you have experience to share. Let's see some articles on sports injuries..

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.
