Meet the 2005 CJON Associate Editors
Here are the oncology nurses who are the associate editors of the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing (CJON) for 2005. They are all clinicians
who care for patients with cancer on a day-to-day basis and support the mission of CJON, which is to provide practical information necessary
for direct care of patients and their families across the cancer continuum. Each associate editor coordinates one or more columns, and all are
receptive to working with readers who are interested in authoring columns. The associate editors also welcome your comments, ideas, and
suggestions for column topics. Contact information for each associate editor can be found at the end of each editor's role description.
