Shown below are the active members of the management team, those whose main focus is to provide regular blog posts, and our “emerita” who are no longer active, but who made significant contributions during their service on the team.

The main responsibility of the management team is  development of content for the site, and providing assurance that we proceed in concert with our stated mission, goals, values and ethics.  We meet on video conference once a month.  Management team members contribute to the web site by (1) writing blogs, (2) submitting exemplars of applications of nursing theories or models, (3) developing content about one or more conceptual models and theories of nursology, (4) assisting with keeping the site current and accurate, and (5) attending as many as possible of our monthly Zoom meetings (usually held at 4 PM Eastern Time on the 3rd Thursday of each month).

We welcome all contributions to the site, using the forms provided on the main pages of each section.  In addition, we welcome:
