From the Editors

Dear Readers,

The Journal of Perinatal and Neonatal Nursing (JPNN) celebrates 29 years of publication.  The journal continues to publish four volumes per year, each volume with a specific focus from both the perinatal and neonatal perspective.  Peer-reviewed clinical and research manuscripts, published in the journal, target practicing perinatal and neonatal nurses, aiming to support life-long learning and evidence-based clinical practice. Continuing education offerings are also available.

Our website has seen an impressive increase in visits, and we encourage you to continue to explore our most popular articles.  JPNN is especially interested in the submission of systematic reviews on upcoming topics. Please review our site for upcoming issues.

We have heard from some of our readers that you find the format of in-depth coverage of topics in each of our volumes useful in informing practice, policy development and offering meaningful continuing education.   We are happy to report a large increase in our eTOC subscribers. Our continuing education credits will now be available on line at Nursing Center. We appreciate the increase in visits, visit duration times and page views on the website. Please look for our iPad App!
