 Editor Karen Sue HoytThe Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal. will now have a new Procedures Column, with column editor, Jennifer Wilbeck. We will utilize supplemental digital content (SDC) in the upcoming issue (40-3). The title of this article is Maximizing Success with Rapid Sequence Intubations. SDC will enhance the article text and may include standard media such as text documents, graphics, audio, video, etc. A URL to the additional content will be linked within the article. SDC content will appear online only and will not appear in print.

Also, check out our Dermatology Column again this month with column editor, Nicole Martinez. This column debuted in the last issue of AENJ and in the upcoming issue the article is on Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.

The American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners (AAENP) is also completing an important document, the Practice Standards for the Emergency Nurse Practitioners Specialty, which will support establishing and credentialing mechanisms for facilities and inform emergency nurse practitioner (ENP) curricula. AAENP plans to publish the Practice Standards for the Emergency Nurse Practitioners Specialty in a future issue (40-4) of the Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal.

Happy summer reading!
