 Current Edition Minimize


 Journal Philosophy Minimize

The journal is the official publication of two Australian and one New Zealand professional nursing groups caring for babies, children, young people and their families. These three organisations represent a diversity of interests ranging from acute care to community based nursing services.

The journal will endeavour to reflect this diversity by its content. We acknowledge that neonatal, paediatric and child health nursing have many different aspects that may be relevant to more than one sector of the membership.

The editorial staff will seek to provide a balanced publication that will meet the needs of the various members. In addition the journal provides a variety of content including research reports, discussion papers, case studies and clinical reviews. An international panel of expert nurses provides double-blind peer review.

Professor Linda Johnston appointed as the new Editor for NPCHN - Wednesday, March 30, 2011


On behalf of the the Journal Management Board of NPCHN, I am pleased to officially inform the members of the three Colleges that a new Editor has been appointed. We welcome Professor Linda Johnston, currently Head of the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the Queen's University in Belfast, to the role. Professor Johnston is a longstanding and highly regarded member of ACNN, and has had a long association with the Journal, being one of the first associate editors. Dr Linda Shields will be stepping down as current Editor and we are most appreciative of all the hard work Dr Shields has put in to establish the editorial systems over the last few years.
