Letters to the Editor
Another outstanding issue of Johns Hopkins Nursing! I always read your magazine before The Atlantic Monthly and The Economist–so much of interest in each issue.
I especially appreciated the “Purposeful Hourly Rounding Benefits Patients” article [“Asking the Right Questions,” Summer 2012, page 50] and will plan to share it with international organizations when we are conducting Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation surveys. Many international organizations struggle with reducing the risk of patient harm resulting from falls, and Sibley Memorial has implemented a successful program.
Thank you for sharing their program.

I just received about four copies of Johns Hopkins Nursing, where you highlight Nursing’s Blueprint for the Future, Vol. II. I just love what you did, and would like…several more copies of Vol. I and Vol. II so we can put them on a table for the Deans to pick up and see.

This issue wraps up our three-part series “Nursing’s Blueprint for the Future.” In 2012, every issue of Johns Hopkins Nursing explored how nursing is implementing recommendations made in the Institute of Medicine’s report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health. Enjoy this, the final installment, in which we explain the intricacies of collecting nursing workforce data nationwide and the challenges of establishing a culture of learning throughout a nurse’s career.
