Nursing Standard has appointed only its third editor in 20 years, as it continues to focus on being a digital-first publisher.

Editor Lynn Eaton joins RCNi, which publishes Nursing Standard, from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, where she edited its Frontline magazine.

During her career, which began in Birmingham at Social Work Today, Ms Eaton – a graduate of University of Warwick – has written on health and social affairs for titles including the Guardian, Independent and Sunday Times.

She has also worked as news editor of the BMJ and edited Mental Health Today.

Ms Eaton's responsibilities include overseeing Nursing Standard’s daily e-bulletin, which circulates to 100,000 nursing staff in the UK and around the world.

The journal, which recently switched to a monthly publication schedule, has increased circulation, as well as releasing a mobile app.

Ms Eaton said: ‘I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to work with such an excellent, professional team.

‘Nursing Standard is the flagship title for the nursing profession. Our readers go the extra mile for their patients; I’ll be going the extra mile to make sure our nurse subscribers have the information they need to do their jobs well.’

Going from 'strength to strength'

Her predecessor Graham Scott remains editorial director of RCNi, overseeing the company’s 11 journals, online learning product and decision support tool.

Mr Scott said: 'We are delighted to have secured the services of such an experienced, and respected health journalist.'

‘The early signs are encouraging, and Lynn is inheriting a great team, so the title is expected to go from strength to strength.’
