AJN Off the Charts is the blog of the American Journal of Nursing. We publish two to three new posts each week, drawing attention to important research findings, policy controversies, clinical practices and challenges, public health news, nursing career issues, personal stories told by both nurses and patients, ethical issues in health care, and much more.
