The Nursology.net management team members are primarily responsible for blog posts that appear at least weekly! However, 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.
- A brief bio and author(s)’ photo(s) are included.
Members of the Nursology.net management team provide review, assistance and guidance as needed for first-time contributors.
