With this issue, we introduce the 4 finalists for the second annual Oncology Nurse Excellence award. The 4 finalists—Darcie Deaver, MSN, NP-C; Wendy Miano, RN, MSN, DNP, DN; Patricia (Patti) Palmer, RN, MS, AOCN; and Deborah Thompson, BSN, ONC—were selected from among the many nominations we received. Given the caliber of all the nominees, it was very difficult to narrow it down to just 4 finalists. By recognizing their outstanding contributions, we acknowledge not only their accomplishments but also the endeavors of all those who are part of the oncology nursing profession. And now it’s your turn. Go to www.TheOncologyNurse.com/award to vote for your choice as the recipient of the Oncology Nurse Excellence award. The winner will be announced in the June issue of The Oncology Nurse-APN/PA

This issue covers a range of topics—everything from the future of nursing education and practice to the importance of making sure we all include cruciferous vegetables in our diet. Catherine Bishop sums up the recommendations laid out in the Institute of Medicine report regarding the need for nurses to continue their formal education and to expand their roles within the entire spectrum of  healthcare. Sandra Kurtin tells us about the key elements of precision medicine and how we must all educate ourselves and our patients about these complex concepts.

In the Your FAQs…Answered column, Deena Damsky Dell addresses the issue of whether it is safe for women at risk for breast cancer–related  ymphedema to lift weights. She informs us about the evidence-based literature on the subject and provides a list of resources for both healthcare providers and patients. And once again, Karen Connelly makes us pull out our grocery shopping lists so we can prepare one of her delicious and healthy recipes.  This time, we’ll be in the veggie section, stocking up on bok choy and collard greens. 

Don’t forget to visit our Web site to vote for the recipient of the second annual Oncology Nurse Excellence award.
