It is with great sadness that I note the death of longtime manuscript reviewer and editorial advisor, Karen S. Ehrat, PhD, RN, Executive Vice President, Hospital Operations, Baptist Health System, San Antonio, Tex, on February 12, 2006. President of the American Association of Nurse Executives (AONE) from 1990 to 1991, Karen was a friend and colleague who significantly contributed to the editorial quality of JONA since 1987. She will be missed.
