Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Managing Editor Karen Roush present the highlights of the September issue of the American Journal of Nursing. Photography by an upstate New York physician appears on this month’s cover – from his project capturing the stories of patients in the Adirondacks. The image ties in with our first September CE examining loneliness in older adults. The second CE describes care of pregnant women in the criminal justice system. Policy and Politics this month assesses gun violence as a public health issue, and another article recognizes Nurse Academy, a program that introduces high school students to the nursing profession. The authors of our Cultivating Quality describe failure to rescue, the Wound Wise column explains pressure ulcer guidelines, and of course, our issue includes Reflections, Viewpoint, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
