Resources to Support Family Caregivers​

Through the years, AJN has published several special supplements, article series, and videos to help nurses teach and support family caregivers. See this Resouces to Support Family Caregivers​ for content to manage the complex care regimens of their family members.

Supporting Family Caregivers: No Longer Home Alone, a series of articles and accompanying videos published in collaboration with the AARP Public Policy Institute, aims to help nurses provide caregivers with the tools needed to manage a family member's care.

​​COVID-19 Watch: Pandemic Updates for Nurses

The COVID-19 pandemic has strained health care systems, increased nurses' responsibilities, and resulted in significant changes in the way we manage care. With this regularly-updated collection of writings and podcasts, AJN will address the "new normal" that faces nurses in every work setting. 

Note that as this situation evolves and the true scope and seriousness of the crisis becomes ever more apparent, certain information and perspectives in older posts, podcasts, and articles will no longer be accurate or up to date; such posts are very much of their particular moment, retained for archive purposes, and should be read accordingly.​

Textbooks can’t keep students abreast of new developments and issues. Adopt AJN as part of your curriculum!

Teaching with AJN​ is a school adoption program to help faculty provide students with cutting edge, evidence-based information, create awareness of the emerging and controversial issues confronting nursing and health care, current issues affecting nursing, and foster an ethic of lifelong learning crucial to professionals. Teaching with AJN will include subscription discounts, an on-site writing workshop, and more.
