AJN The American Journal of Nursing October 2013, Volume 113, Issue 10;
Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Managing Editor Karen Roush present the highlights of the October issue of the American Journal of Nursing. This month’s cover photo comes from a photo essay of gender non-conforming children at a camp for transgender children, tying in with our AJN reports on the same topic. Nurses from Hartford Hospital wrote our first CE this month, describing their successful nurse-led quality improvement project for cognitively-impaired patients. The second CE discusses the prevention of VAP pneumonia through mouth care. Another article explains how nurses can advise patients who have an infestation of bed bugs. The iNurse column introduces podcasts to those unfamiliar with their relevance to nursing today, and the Evidence for Excellence column explores opioid-induced neurotoxicity. In addition, our issue includes News, Reflections, Viewpoint, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
