The American Nurses Association and its official journal, American Nurse Today, are pleased to introduce an enhanced communications program for ANA members in 2017.
After conducting an extensive readership survey and evaluating other member feedback, we are excited to offer members a new mix and publishing schedule of timely and relevant content.
Since 2006, American Nurse Today has been the official journal of ANA. Beginning in January 2017, American Nurse Today is introducing a new section in the journal — ANA on the Frontline. This new section integrates
much of the core content about ANA’s initiatives and nursing news that was brought to you in The American Nurse newspaper.
Additionally, American Nurse Today will publish on a new schedule. The journal will arrive in your mailbox as a printed publication 10 times per year, supplemented with online-only issues in August and December.
With the new publishing mix, ANA’s members benefit from:
1. timely publication of ANA’s news and information — ANA on the Frontline every month. (The American Nurse was published bimonthly.)
2. one journal that includes both useful peer-reviewed, clinical nursing editorial content and original reporting on important news and nursing trends from ANA
3. an expanded print schedule — 10 times a year plus two digital (turn-page format) issues.
Also, members will continue to enjoy the benefits of ANA’s digital newsletters, which include the following:
ANA SmartBrief — e-news briefings designed for nursing professionals on health care, research, policy, and technology, delivered to your email box each morning, Monday through Friday
ANA Member News — upcoming programs, resources, and opportunities for ANA members, delivered to your email box each month
The Online Journal of Issues in Nursing — a peer-reviewed, online publication that addresses current topics affecting nursing practice, research, education, and the wider healthcare sector, delivered to your email box three times per year (January, May, and September).
Also, we have launched a new blog, the Capitol Beat, where you can read about ANA’s advocacy and policy efforts. Visit anacapitolbeat.org.
