Would you like to write for Nursing Children and Young People?

Nursing Children and Young People is the UK’s leading journal covering evidence-based practice in child health nursing. It aims to promote excellence in neonatal, children’s and young people’s care, and used to be called Paediatric Nursing.

It publishes original research, clinical updates and policy briefings, descriptions of practice innovations, literature reviews, case studies, opinion articles, news, analysis and features. Articles from outside the UK will be considered for publication.

The journal also publishes continuing professional development articles to inform, support and educate nurses working in this field of practice, and to help contributors and their readers prepare for revalidation.

If you have an idea for an article or how to develop the journal in print or online, the editorial team wants to hear from you. How about any of the following topics, for example:

  • Service delivery and improvement
  • Children’s acute care
  • Community children’s nursing
  • Neonatal nursing
  • School nursing
  • Advanced practice
  • Clinical skills
