Military nurses are bound by the Oath of Commissioned Officers to protect their country and not simply to follow orders—in this way, their oath differs from the one taken by enlisted personnel. While officers are legally bound by the Uniform Code of Military Justice to follow orders, they are also expected to use sound judgment in assessing them—and to sometimes refuse those that are not in the best interests of the country, even if doing so means they will be held morally and legally responsible for the exceptional act of refusal. In some situations, the moral expectation to assess orders can present a conflict of fundamental values with a high potential for moral distress for the nurses involved.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/AjnTheAmericanJournalOfNursing-BehindTheArticle/~4/Z1GOGWSknVU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

<img src="/ajnonline/PublishingImages/Laurie-Cook-Heffron.jpg" align="left" hspace="5" vspace="5" border="1"> It used to be that evidence of sexual assault was not collected during the initial health exam unless the assault survivor had already initiated a report to law enforcement agencies. However, recognizing the trauma surrounding an assault, some states do conduct a forensic exam, store the evidence and allow survivors up to two years to decide whether or not to report the crime. Lead author Laurie Heffron discusses with AJN editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy the findings of her mixed methods study of the impact of this nonreport option on health professionals, survivors and the criminal justice system.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/AjnTheAmericanJournalOfNursing-BehindTheArticle/~4/i4lcCe3Z9v0" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Nurses who extend care beyond these policies know that they’re deviating, but are doing so in a responsible way with honorable intentions that benefit the patient. She suggests increased flexibility through guidelines rather than rules under circumstances that require the adaptation of care to suit the patient and their immediate needs.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/AjnTheAmericanJournalOfNursing-BehindTheArticle/~4/RvzyPRAKuSs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

A quality of care assessment of the unit, staffed with long-term nursing attendants and RNs, found that patient care services were negatively impacted by practice issues such as attendant accuracy with vital signs, recording intake and output, and communication among the technicians and nurses. Although the RNs were involved in continuing education opportunities, technicians were not. Nurses volunteered to lead an initiative to upgrade technicians’ skills by addressing their educational needs. Both collaborated to define staff roles, which enhanced their team spirit for better patient care.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/AjnTheAmericanJournalOfNursing-BehindTheArticle/~4/CpD4DFKL5tY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Interview with Mary Deane Lagerway
20:59
<em>AJN</em> senior editor James Stubenrauch interviews Mary Deane Lagerwey, PhD, RN, author of “The Third Reich, Nursing, & <em>AJN</em>,” which appears the August issue. Lagerwey conducted an historical analysis of <em>AJN</em>’s coverage of events in Europe during the Nazi era and in the postwar years, comparing it with that of other popular and professional publications. She found that <em>AJN</em> failed to report on the complicity of German nurses in the Holocaust and that, in the interest of promoting international cooperation and an image of nursing unity, <em>AJN</em> shirked its duty to hold German nurses accountable. In the interview, she discusses the relevance of such historical analysis to the current debate on the role of nursing during wartime.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/AjnTheAmericanJournalOfNursing-BehindTheArticle/~4/I-4u5jhD6hU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
