Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the June issue of the American Journal of Nursing. This month’s cover photo evokes the isolation faced by victims of intimate partner violence. Our first CE, “Original Research: Intimate Partner Violence: The Knowledge, Attitudes, Beliefs, and Behaviors of Rural Health Care Providers,” analyzes the perceptions of rural health care providers regarding intimate partner violence prevalence, how comfortable they feel asking about emotional and physical abuse, and whether they feel able to help those women who disclose it. In our second CE, “Late and Long-Term Sequelae of Breast Cancer Treatment,” the authors provide an overview of the potentially debilitating physical problems that many breast cancer survivors experience after treatment, and address assessment and management strategies. Our next article, “Perspectives on Palliative Nursing: Palliative Chemotherapy,” addresses the use of chemotherapy in patients with end-stage cancer, and explores the nurse’s role in discussing palliative options with patients. In “Transition to Practice: A New Nurse’s First Days at the Bedside,” the author shares preparation tips for new nurses the first day on the job. “Special Feature: Nurses in the Civil Rights Movement” highlights the experiences of five nurses and one nursing student who fought for racial equality in the 1960s. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
