Editor-in-Chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the December issue of the American Journal of Nursing. On this month’s cover, an American NP, Mary Plumb Senkel, volunteers at a rural makeshift clinic near Jacmel, Haiti. Our first CE, “Original Research: Examining the Links Between Lifestyle Factors and Metabolic Syndrome,” discusses a study that examined lifestyle risk factors for metabolic syndrome in people who are overweight or obese, aiming to distinguish those lifestyle factors associated with metabolic health in this population. In our second CE, “Preventing Contrast-Induced Kidney Injury,” the author provides an evidence-based review of screening, risk assessment, and hydration protocols for the clinical management of patients receiving contrast agents for radiographic imaging studies. Our next article, “Supporting Family Caregivers: Administration of Subcutaneous Injections” discusses how nurses can help family caregivers enhance their knowledge, experience, and skill in managing injectable treatments. In “Remembering Pearl Harbor at 75 Years,” the authors tell the stories of five Army and Navy nurses who witnessed the attack, prepared for the casualties, and selflessly cared for the many victims. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
