Evidence Based Nursing: Associate Editor Vacancy
Evidence-Based Nursing is looking to appoint a new associate editor with expertise in Intellectual Disabilities nursing or research to join our team. Evidence Based Nursing serves to provide nurses, midwives and other healthcare practitioners with insights into the latest clinical and professional research. The journal commissions and publishes commentaries on recent literature, providing analysis and critique of methods, findings, and implication for practice and research. In addition, the journal stimulates discussion and supports learning through publication of editorials, and evidence-based summaries of nursing-related research and nurse education.
