Dear Readers,

The Journal of Perinatal and Neonatal Nursing (JPNN) is in 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 years, the 33rd and 34th volumes will cover wide ranging topics noted under the Column ... Upcoming Issues. We invite authors to peruse the Call for Manuscripts and the selected dates for each issue. 

We continue to feature expert columns on perinatal and neonatal care as well as columns on Breastfeeding and Nutrition and Legal Issues/Risk Management. We are grateful to our editorial board members, and we invite the reader to view the Best Manuscripts and Best Reviewers for 2017-2018 on the webpage.

Follow us on Facebook and check the website for regular updates on current events and happenings in perinatal and neonatal nursing. If you have any thoughts or suggestions for JPNN, we would love to hear from you. We look forward to serving you and appreciate your readership.
