I’ve written before re: initials in your magazine and you reduced them a lot but not enough! Reading the first 11 pages I came across 15 CAPITAL LETTERS. It disturbs the relaxing flow of reading for me. I’m 85 now (Class of ’53) and always look forward to what’s included in your improving publication. Perhaps you

The best part of this job is meeting people. Not to kiss up, but nurses are proving to be fascinating folks to talk to. Still, any reporter will tell you a “phoner” can save time and means you don’t need to wear a clean shirt and nice shoes. Sometimes, deadlines or distance rule out doing

In the latest issue of Johns Hopkins Nursing, the final picture misidentifies the name of the school. Those pictured attended The Johns Hopkins Hospital School of Nursing. The word training was not included. In fact from the day we arrived we were told that we were there to be educated, not trained. Another recent inaccuracy

You might have noticed at first touch that the Summer 2016 issue of Johns Hopkins Nursing is a bit ... svelte. The slenderizing is for a very specific reason: trading a little paper today to keep fresh news and notes coming to you more often than just three times a year. No, we're not killing the

The office phone rang a few days after the Summer 2013 issue of Johns Hopkins Nursing magazine had mailed. It was Jessica Kensky’s father. He was grateful for the thoughts and prayers for his daughter, injured terribly along with her husband in the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15 of that year. The item in the

It was summer jury duty, with 1,000 or so peers along for the ride in the Clarence Mitchell Courthouse. Most wouldn’t be called out of the waiting room at all today, and the smart ones had brought books or magazines or puzzles, anything to pass the time. The rest of us fiddled with our phones,

Much as I enjoy your magazine, I must take issue with an implication in the “Mother Knows Best” article from Johns Hopkins Nursing [Summer 2015]. As my husband read this article, he looked up and said, “I thought you have a BSN from Hopkins.”     While I understand the article was referring to Hopkins’

For a non-morning person and non-sophisticated coffee drinker in general, it’s a little funny how often your editor’s been called upon to be the creator and bearer of the a.m. java jolt. When I was 10, it was my job to boil water and make instant coffee (remember that?) with milk and sugar, walk it

A self-important writer at another publication once accused your friendly neighborhood editor of “dumbing down” a feature story by substituting a simpler, more economical word for one usually reserved for a Rhodes Scholar spelling bee. I argued that the vast majority of readers might not know his chosen word’s meaning. He snorted: “They can look

I have been a reader of this magazine, in several formats, since my graduation in 1960. I have always looked forward to receiving it with its informative articles and updates from alumnae of all years. This issue has prodded me to write you for the first time in all those years. Nurses tend to be picky individuals,
