Things are busy as JNPD begins its 32nd year, and we are proud to be the go-to journal for NPD practitioners and others interested in ongoing nursing  education and development.  The January/February issue starts with Kari Schmidt's editorial on authorship, which we hope inspires you and your colleagues to write!   Joyce Johnson, JNPD's Administration column editor, serves up another helping of leadership insight with her piece "If You're Not at the Table, You're on the Menu".   ANPD Director Patsy Maloney begins her tenure at the ANPD Update column editor, and describes the value of being a member.

Our full-length articles include the second of a popular two-part series on Copyright, by LaVelle and colleagues.  Copyright questions arise daily, whether we are authoring, citing, borrowing, or replicating material!  This month's continuing education (CE) offering features Toronto & Weatherford's article about nurses' work with individuals having low health literacy.  What a timely topic, as patients seek and need more information than ever before.   Oja & Kelly ask the question "To lecture, or not to lecture?" in their piece, and there are two different articles regarding evidence based practice education programs.  Jarrell describes the mentorship needs of nurse practitioners, who have a growing presence at the bedside. 

As you can see, there is something for everyone.  We hope this information helps you get your new year off to a productive and inspired start.  We look forward to another successful year, and will continue to share your best ideas, research and projects via JNPD.    

Cheers!
