Article Content

If you are a critical care nurse, nurse-educator, nurse-manager, nurse practitioner, or clinical nurse specialist, researcher, or someone interested in critical care nursing, Dimensions of Critical Care Nursing would like to hear from you.


We are looking for manuscripts in critical care topics with direct application to clinical practice, leadership, education, or research. Specifically, we are interested in manuscripts on the latest critical care technology, drugs, research, procedures, leadership strategies, ethical issues, career development, and patient/family education.


Your work must not have been previously published elsewhere or be under consideration for publication in other journals or books.


Manuscripts should be typed, double-spaced, and followed by references, tables, figures, and black-and-white artwork (when appropriate). Number references consecutively in the body of your manuscript and place reference citations at the end of the article. Do not reference commonly held opinions and perceptions unless their history is the article's principal topic. Follow the standard practice for legal citations. Also be sure to include an abstract for your article and biographic information for all authors. All manuscripts must be accompanied with a diskette or can be e-mailed directly to [email protected]. Manuscripts not accompanied by a diskette or sent electronically will be returned.


Send your query letter or manuscript including three hard copies and disk (or electronically) to:
