AJN The American Journal of Nursing May 2014, Volume 114, Issue 5;

Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Managing Editor Karen Roush present the highlights of the May issue of the American Journal of Nursing. A nurse practitioner we profile appears on our cover this month with a young Haitian patient. And our first CE article assesses the epidemic in Haiti. Our second CE discusses what nurses should know about intimate partner violence in rural U.S. areas.

We have the third installment of our systematic reviews series focusing this month on search strategies. Our new Teaching for Practice series delineates the roles of adjunct clinical faculty. We have a critical care analysis article on noise in the ICU and present evidence-based strategies for nurses to decrease noise. And an AJN Reports addresses the rise in heroin use. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, a Viewpoint on power napping in the workplace, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more. Happy Nurses Week!
