The significance of nursing theory began to be recognized anew with the 2019 conference marking the 50-year anniversary of the Nursing Theory Colloquia of 1968-69. As an outcome of that conference, the 2nd Annual Nursing Theory Conference is happening in March 2020 - at the same time that this issue is current! This issue of ANS includes a number of articles focused on various recent theoretical developments that you will not want to miss.
We invite you to explore the contents of this issue, and to follow the ANS Journal blog where we post messages from the authors giving more background about their work! We always welcome your comments in response to any ANS articles!
