AJN The American Journal of Nursing November 2012, Volume 112, Issue 11;
Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and clinical managing editor Karen Roush present the highlights of the November 2012 issue of the American Journal of Nursing. This month’s cover features military veteran Jim Stanek and his service dog, Sarge, who’s eased Jim’s struggle with PTSD and traumatic brain injury. This issue also offers two CE features: one on recognizing and treating depression in older adults. The second CE explains the use and possible complications of needleless connectors for IV catheters. This month’s mental health column explores the current rise in PTSD among veterans and how nurses can recognize this condition. And of course, there’s News, an AJN Reports on helping veterans access specialty care, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, Reflections, and more.
