Welcome to your newly designed American Nurse Journal, or as we like to call it, American Nurse! We’ve been quite busy the last 5 months researching all nursing specialties across all generations to create the optimal reader experience for journal subscribers and members of the American Nurses Association (ANA).

It’s a new year and a new decade—an amazing opportunity for us to recognize you and celebrate the Year of the Nurse by offering an even better product designed to meet your evolving needs. The changes will help us fulfill our commitment to giving you clinical, practical information that helps you promote positive patient outcomes, advance your career, and enhance your professional and personal growth and fulfillment.

When we were planning the launch of American Nurse Today more than 15 years ago, the world—and the way content was accessed—was undoubtedly different. To reflect current methods of obtaining information, we’ve added more online content to our newly designed website We’ve also made the pages in the journal more open and easier to read for those on the go.

We continue to strike a balance between the content that fills the pages of American Nurse and the boundless depths of our website. Coming in 2020, you’ll find more videos, podcasts, and interactive tools for healthcare, and more ways to share your expertise online. We want to make content easier to access via mobile devices, so you can quickly find answers to your questions and participate in stimulating discussions within the online nursing community.

These changes are, by no means, an obligatory exercise—it’s our way of ensuring that we provide you with leading content across multiple platforms. We’ll keep looking to your input for the content you want and how you want to receive it.

You’ll note on the cover of American Nurse that we’ve focused on the one word that is first and foremost to us—NURSE. As nurses, you provide an amazing service to society, and we are proud to be able to help you in your role. Know that we will continue to seek ways to enhance your reader experience as we deliver our award-winning content.

We believe that this is the experience you deserve (the best)!

  • Being the nurse advocate that I am, it is essential for nurse to have a positive moment. The year of the nurse is vital for the replenishing of the nursing profession. I am blessed to be a nurse and will carry that banner to help promote the profession. I love the new layout and am honored to be a nurse.

    The American Nurse publication is newly penned. The visual message is powerful. I am confident the ANA “NURSE” will continue to offer content of interest to professional nursing.
