The two focus sections in the March 2018 issue of American Nurse Today are Patient Safety and Nursing Excellence. The patient safety articles take a close look at high reliability organizations and safety cultures. Nursing excellence includes articles on ethics and staffing, along with an article that compares the American Nurses Credentialing Center Magnet Recognition and Pathway to Excellence programs. The CNE article this month is on pharmacological management of diabetes, including insulin and noninsulin medications. And make sure you check out the most recent installment of the Wellness 101 series; this issue offers advice on emotional wellness. You’ll find lots of other articles on topics ranging from acute GI bleeds and supraventricular tachycardia to building professional networks and data-driven staffing.
