The March Reflections, “Skipped Two Times,” submitted to AJN by a dialysis nurse from China, is about a potentially avoidable crisis in the health of a young man with renal failure secondary to lupus. It’s about chronic illness, patient self-management, and a nurse’s remorse.
To my knowledge this is the first Reflections essay by a Chinese nurse that we’ve published. We’ve already heard from more than one reader who was moved by the story. It’s free, so give it a look.—JM, senior editor
