This Month in AJN – January 2019 monthly highlights

January 2019

Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and clinical editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the January issue of AJN. The authors of our first CE, “Original Research: Antineoplastic Drug Administration by Pregnant and Nonpregnant Nurses: An Exploration of the Use of Protective Gloves and Gowns,” examine this practice among nurses in the Nurses’ Health Study 3. Our second CE, “Addressing Food Insecurity in Vulnerable Populations,” discusses the factors that contribute to food insecurity and the populations at greatest risk, as well as screening tools and resources for vulnerable patients. In our next article, “Helping Students to Be Gritty,” the author shares strategies for fostering grit—a trait marked by perseverance and resilience and associated with success—in nursing students. “Early, Nurse-Directed Sepsis Care” describes a single-center, multiyear quality improvement initiative designed to promote early recognition and treatment of sepsis and examines its effect on sepsis-related mortality rates, bundle adherence, and the need for rapid response team calls. In addition, there’s News, the Book of the Year Awards, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.

In this video, Christina C. Lawson, PhD, lead author of “Antineoplastic Drug Administration by Pregnant and Nonpregnant Nurses: An Exploration of the Use of Protective Gloves and Gowns,” introduces a study that examined this practice among nurses.
