We are pleased to announce the forthcoming publication in July 2022 of a special issue on “Reimagining the Future of Nursing.” We are interested in manuscripts on a wide range of issues that address the future of nursing.


Papers do not have to be limited to prelicensure nursing.

  • Quality, safety, and systems-based practices
  • Use of healthcare technologies
  • Population health and social determinants of health
  • Climate change and environmental justice
  • Disaster preparedness and response
  • Experiential learning to promote health equity
  • Strategies for addressing bias, racism and injustice in nursing
  • Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary education
  • Nursing and community action
  • Health policy and advocacy
  • Developing health equity competencies for faculty and students
  • Culturally informed care and cultural humility
  • Delivering inclusive person-centered care
  • Regulatory and accreditation changes


We welcome research, innovative practice manuscripts, literature reviews, and theoretical papers. Authors can include links to websites, applications, or demonstrations; video demonstrations up to 3 minutes; audio files; and photos, forms, documents, or figures that illustrate the text.
