Article Content


We regularly hear from authors who are pleased with the outcome of their articles as published in print or online through JCN. Our small, but mighty, staff works with authors to produce the best possible articles. We desire to help nurses communicate well, and are willing to go the extra step, assisting at Editorial Manager, suggesting areas for improvement, and offering quality peer-review.
