November 2017 Vol. 12 No. 11

In the November issue of American Nurse Today, you’ll find the results to our 2017 nursing trends and salary survey. We got so much good information that we’re going to have to share it with you in two parts (the second article will appear in December). In this issue, the focus is on salaries, benefits, education, and what nurses like and don’t like about their jobs. Other articles in this issue cover topics like cognitive impairment in the elderly (that’s the CNE this month), situational awareness, mental health emergencies, and descriptive statistics. And in ANA on the Frontline, you can read about how your nursing colleagues handled hurricanes and wildfires across the country.
