Clear communication is critical to all aspects of nursing care. Without it, patients may not comprehend their diagnosis, treatment options, and more, and clinicians will be hard pressed to understand their patients’ needs. When a patient is deaf or hard of hearing, nurses and other members of the care team must make every effort to provide qualified translators or other tools to ensure quality care can be provided. The article by Omobola Awosika Oyeleye, EdD, JD, MSN, Med, RN-BC, CNE, features a case scenario to explain how effective communication should be provided and the consequences of failing to do so.

Other articles in this issue cover topics ranging from pain assessment and nonpharmacologic management in older adults (this month’s CNE article), advanced practice RN and physician assistant teams, millennial nurse leaders, and careers in correctional nursing. We also took the opportunity this month to thank the many peer reviewers who work to ensure the content in American Nurse Journal is accurate and relevant to practicing nurses.
