​Dear Nurse Leaders,

 

The November edition of JONA provides a large amount of supplemental digital content files that will be interesting for the readers as you review the articles for applicability in your settings. In the artlcle "Video Messaging as an Innovative Practice for CNO Communication", Sherry Stone, MSN, RN-BC and her co-authors discuss a project to support a creative method to highlight important activities and units within their organizaation and promote the image and communication of the CNO. As an adjunct to the article, the authors have attached a sample of one of the video messages which I think is so well done. In "Developing a Research Friendly Environment: The Librarian's Role, Wright and Brockopp have uploaded a sample job description for a clinical librarian in a research intensive clinical environment as supplemental content.

Compassion fatigue is a topic of interest to many. Dr. Marlene Walden and her co-authors report a study examining the prevelence of compassion fatigue and life stress among a large sample of pediatric nurses. High levels of compassion satisfaction and moderate to low burnout and secondary traumatic stress were reported by 49% of the participants. Life stress scores were signficantly associated with the age, experience, organizational tenure and professional engagement of the nurse.

Thanks as always to our peers and colleagues from ANCC who participated in distributing the JONA October edition and special supplement at the 2018 Magnet Conference. The topic of the supplement, "Healthy Work Environments: Magnet Supporting Nurse Safety and Satisfaction" is one that will resonate with many of us in all areas of practice as we strive to support nurses. This supplement is also available on our web site if you were unable to attend the conference. Look in the "News and Notes" section of this web site to see a link to a writing CE available through Sigma Theta Tau. At the Magnet Research Symposium where I presented, there were some questions about getting started with a manuscript and suggestions for working with an Editor. These areas are addressed in this self study which may be a good resource for writing teams or novice authors wishing to publish.

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,

Karen S. Hill, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, FACHE, FAAN
