GUIDELINES FOR CONTRIBUTORS

 

Creative Nursing is a themed peer-reviewed quarterly professional journal. Each issue of Creative Nursing brings readers insights into topics of interest to health care professionals from various practice settings. Creative Nursing is edited by health care professionals who love our professions and have a vision for their future. Article submissions from all walks of life are welcome and will receive respectful consideration. We strive to foster diverse perspectives and experiences, and invite contributors with unique insights, backgrounds, and expertise to join this inclusive dialogue. We especially welcome submissions from novice authors, and work with them to prepare robust, scholarly content. Articles accepted for potential publication undergo blinded review by independent content experts who hold advanced degrees in nursing or relevant related fields. The name of our journal reflects our historical origin as a publication about Primary Nursing, but we encourage and publish interprofessional articles from all health care disciplines around the world.

Creative Nursing considers manuscripts on topics related to both the practical and theoretical aspects of health care, including:

  • Original articles presenting thoughtful discussion of a topic, including a review of the available body of knowledge concerning the topic.
