The Journal of Perinatal and Neonatal Nursing (JPNN) starts its fourth decade of making a contribution to the body of literature that is relevant to perinatal and neonatal nursing practice. Research findings continue to underscore that the perinatal and neonatal periods are critical to human health across the lifespan. With that, the complexity of caring for women during the perinatal period and infants during the neonatal period is higher than ever before. The Journal of Perinatal and Neonatal Nursing continues to be one of the premier sources of literature for perinatal and neonatal nurses on best clinical practices.
In the coming year, the 32nd issue will be published covering topics that include legal and ethical issues, breastfeeding/ baby friendly, and critical care of the pregnant woman and newborn infant. Manuscripts for the 33rd Year include topics on innovations in clinical practice (due in July, 2018), disparities and access to care (due in October, 2018), and emergency and disaster readiness (due in February, 2019).
We continue to feature expert columns on perinatal and neonatal nursing as well as columns on Pharmacology: Principles and Practice as well as Legal Issues and Risk Management. We are grateful to our editorial board members, and are always interested in the prospect of new editorial board members. Thank you to our outstanding peer-reviewers for JPNN.
