Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Managing Editor Karen Roush present the highlights of the January issue of the American Journal of Nursing. A painting on this month’s cover depicts a more modern provider in today’s changing healthcare landscape than Norman Rockwell’s typical portraits of the kindly older family doctor. Our first CE is an original research on employment-based discrimination among foreign-educated nurses. Our second CE defines the principles behind the self-management of urinary and fecal incontinence and what patients need in order to control these conditions on their own. Our annual “Year in Review” recognizes the most significant healthcare stories of the year and assesses the nursing job market. The “Mental Health Matters” column explores public perceptions of the link between mental illness and violence, reviewing the research and how nurses can identify risks. “Emerging Infections” provides updates on Middle East Respiratory Syndrome. We also announce our annual Book of the Year award winners in this issue. And of course there’s News, In Our Community, Reflections, Viewpoint, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
