AJN The American Journal of Nursing June 2014, Volume 114, Issue 6;

Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Managing Editor Karen Roush present the highlights of the June issue of the American Journal of Nursing. A newborn appears on our cover this month, relating to our first CE, “Genomic Breakthroughs in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Cystic Fibrosis.” Our second CE (with podcast) discusses the health care disparities faced by the LGBT population.

We have the fourth installment of our systematic reviews series focusing on study selection and critical appraisal. Our Mental Health Matters column provides an overview of clinical depression and a new treatment: transcranial direct current stimulation. And an Ethical Issues column addresses the implications of denying smokers employment in health care, and Shawn Kennedy speaks with the author in a podcast this month. In addition, there’s an AJN Reports column on whether nurses are ready for retirement, News, Reflections, Viewpoint, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
