This issue of American Nurse Journal finds the world continuing to live with and battle COVID-19. The journal staff want to thank all of the nurses who are bravely caring for patients across the country.

This month’s content may provide a brief respite from the hard work you’re performing every day. The CNE focuses on home care and nurse safety, and our two features provide practical information about unplanned extubation prevention and caring for children with PTSD. Other articles cover topics such as ethics in global health trips, interim manager success, and opioid-induced respiratory depression. We’ve included two focus sections in this issue: one on patient safety and the other on nursing excellence, featuring articles that bust Pathway to Excellence® myths and share the journeys of individual hospitals.
