Article Content

Writing for publication can be an overwhelming challenge for some nurses. The importance of developing the art and science of nursing is based, however, on sharing important clinical and theoretical aspects of practice through journal articles and nursing textbooks. Nurses have an obligation as responsible members of the profession to develop skills in writing for publication. This presentation will discuss the "how-to" of writing for publication including what to write about, when to write, where to write, and how to write. The experiences of published gastroenterology nurse authors and the Gastroenterology Nursing editor will be shared along with tips on increasing the success of being published. A hands-on approach will be used to generate the beginnings of a manuscript for future submission to a journal.
