We are eager to include contributions from nursologists in any walk of nursing life – students, practicing nurses in any setting, educators, administrators, policy-makers and politicians, and those who are “retired” (do we ever retire?)! We welcome blog posts that are consistent with the mission and purposes of Nursology.net, such as posts that:
- Support and encourage the development of nursing knowledge,
- Present critical discussion of ideas that are relevant to nursology,
- Honor nurses who have been “guardians” of the discipline,
- Memorialize the life of nursologists who have died,
- Bring to the forefront notable works related to knowledge development in nursing,
- Provide critical reviews that point toward new possibilities for the future,
- Explore social and political contexts that influence the development of nursing knowledge,
- Share inspiring stories related to the development of nursing knowledge,
Content and writing style guidelines include:
- The author’s own “voice” is clear.
- There is a connection to Nursology.net content, including links to relevant resources on this site.
- Content is creative and original.
- Facts and logic included in the post are plausible.
- Writing style is informal, conversational, and even humorous.
- Photos and illustrations are included, or can be provided.
- If existing literature is cited a link to the source of the existing work is sufficient; if a link is not available, cite the work using APA 7th edition style and format.
- Length ranges between approximately 750 – 1500 words (the shorter the better!).
- A brief bio and author(s)’ photo(s) are included.
