​Dear Nurse Leaders,

Welcome to 2019 with JONA! I hope each of you have a happy, healthy and successful new year. The January edition of JONA begins with a guest editorial discussing the work of a commissioned group of researchers through ANCC to conduct a scoping review into the area of nursing certification. The editorial elaborates on the 3 phases of their research process. A full length article (Chappell, et.al.) is also in January reporting the outcomes of a study to construct the sensitizing definition of certification.

Kato and co-authors present a study evaluating the effect of the LINK (Linking to Improve Nursing Care and Knowledge) initiative. LINK is an academic service partnership focused on creating a formal command and control structure to support clinical nurses who would like to be involved in research.

Wijdenes and her writing team present a study assessing compassion fatigue and the risk among nurses in a large trauma center. The study identifies risk profiles for compasison fatigue across various units and clarifies the optimal timing for interventions.

Carol Boston-Fleischhauer presents a dilemma to nurse leaders and educators about the relevancy of traditional clinical undergraduate rotations, mostly focused on acute care, in preparing nurses for the complex care continuums we face today and in the future

Melora Ferren, MSN, RN-BC, the Social Media Coordinator for JONA, continues to post weekly on Twitter highlighting a topic from the journal. The Twitter address for JONA is #JONANurseLeader.  

Thanks for the emails I receive exploring interest in a topic for possible submission. You can reach me at jonaeditor@gmail.com. Please refer to the Guidelines for Authors located at www.jonajournal.com for guidance about manuscript development and citation information.

Sincerely,
