Recognizing crucial distinctions between muscle tightness, spasticity, and clonus. ABSTRACT: Neuromuscular disorders are complex, difficult both to differentiate and to manage. Yet nurses, who encounter a symptomatically diverse neuromuscular patient population in various practice settings, are expected to be well versed in managing the variable associated symptoms of these disorders.

The goal of this initiative was to provide patients with additional nonpharmacologic options for addressing their symptoms through the creation of an integrative therapy nurse role within the existing interdisciplinary team of physicians, NPs, psychologists, registered dieticians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, and staff nurses...

: This article is one in a series on the roles of adjunct clinical faculty and preceptors, who teach nursing students and new graduates to apply knowledge in clinical settings. Even students nearing the end of their educational program may struggle in the clinical setting and lack the knowledge and skills necessary to provide safe care. The preceptor serves as a role model and helps ensure that only students who are adequately prepared transition to professional practice. This article discusses the role of the nurse preceptor, identifies examples of unsafe student behavior, and shares strategies for preventing and managing such situations in the clinical setting...

: The Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees women the right to vote. Its ratification in 1920 represented the culmination of a decades-long fight in which thousands of women and men marched, picketed, lobbied, and gave speeches in support of women's suffrage. This article provides a closer look at the lives of four nurse suffragists-Lavinia Lloyd Dock, Mary Bartlett Dixon, Sarah Tarleton Colvin, and Hattie Frances Kruger-who were arrested for their involvement in the women's suffrage movement...
