2006 CJON Mentor/Fellow Program Participants
The Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing (CJON) offers an opportunity each year for novice writers to work with experienced authors who will mentor them through the writing and publishing process. In 2006, 10 direct caregivers were paired with mentors, who have guided them through the manuscript preparation process. The CJON Mentor/Fellow Program is generously underwritten through a grant from Amgen Inc.
The CJON Editorial Board and staff congratulate and recognize the mentors and fellows who participated in the CJON Mentor/Fellow Program in 2006.

In Continuing Education Test 2 of the December 2006 issue (Vol. 10, No. 6, pp. 816–818), question 5 reads, “A patient who received an allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation 80 days ago reports to the clinic with complaints of increasing fatigue and is noted to have a mild fever (99.6°F) as well as slightly swollen submandibular lymph glands.” The question asks readers to consider various options related to the probable cause of the symptoms; however, patients with cancer rarely present with typical symptoms of cytomegalovirus, and swollen lymph glands would be unlikely in this population.
