September 2019 Vol. 14 No. 9

The U.S. Hepatitis A outbreak continues, so you need to stay up to date. This September 2019 issue of American Nurse Today includes an article that helps you do just that. You’ll see the current stats about the outbreak (with links to more information from sources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and you’ll learn about how it’s spread, prevention steps, treatment options, and reporting requirements.

The continuing nurse education article focuses on peripheral vascular access devices. These devices are ubiquitous in healthcare, so knowing about proper insertion and maintenance and how to recognize and respond to complications is critical to patient safety. The focus section on Excellence in Nursing provides an opportunity to learn about what Magnet®-recognized organizations are doing and how you can implement research and other strategies into your workplace.
