March 2020 Vol. 15 No. 3


Our cover story in this issue of American Nurse Journal focuses on the overuse of antipsychotic medications in nursing home residents with dementia. These individual may have behavioral expressions that represent unmet needs (discomfort, pain, hunger, need to use the bathroom). Understanding the true cause of these behaviors can help avoid unnecessary antipsychotic medication use, and nurses are perfectly positioned to advocate for other options. Other articles include a feature on the changing face of patients with cystic fibrosis and they live into adulthood and a continuing nursing education article on nursing care goals of patients with chronic kidney disease. You’ll also find articles on the perils of perfectionism, team resilience, the Nurse Licensure Compact, and more.
