Renews its Focus on Research That Affects Patient Care
Philadelphia, PA (January 7, 2013) – For more than forty years, the Journal of Neuroscience Nursing (JNN) has focused on clinically applicable evidence-based research for nurses specializing in neurological disorders. The Journal, the official title of the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses (AANN), announced a renewed commitment to the clinical research and important contributions that neuroscience nurses are bringing to this growing health care specialty. The Journal is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health.
"The Journal of Neuroscience Nursing is continually recognized as the leading source of research in neuroscience nursing," comments V. Susan Carroll, MS, RN-BC, Editor of the JNN. “At a time of rapid evolution in the care of patients with neurological disorders, neuroscience nurses are making unique contributions to the scientific basis of clinical practice, and we are re-invigorating our commitment to these practitioners and our readers.”
To highlight its focus on clinically applicable evidence-based research, the Journal of Neuroscience Nursing carries a new tagline, “Delivering the Latest Evidence in Neuroscience Clinical Practice.” Reflecting the Journal’s expanding contribution to the scientific discussion in the care for neurological disorders, JNN’s Impact Factor increased after its first year on the Journal Citation Reports, published by Thomson Reuters.
Each bimonthly issue of the Journal of Neuroscience Nursing delivers important new articles on nursing management of stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, dementias, brain tumors, and more, while providing unique professional development with continuing education opportunities in each issue. Expert reviews and commentary provide perspective on the latest developments in neuroscience nursing practice, across clinical settings.
