The National League for Nursing’s (NLN) respected, peer-reviewed research journal Nursing Education Perspectives will be published by Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the health care industry. The journal’s January/February 2016 issue, the first to be published by Wolters Kluwer, is available online today.
Nursing Education Perspectives (NEP) is the centerpiece of the NLN |Chamberlain College of Nursing Center for the Advancement of the Science of Nursing Education and a treasured NLN member benefit. The journal will continue its bimonthly publication schedule.
