Bigger and Better: Geriatric Nursing

I am thrilled to announce good news for the journal:
  • Geriatric Nursing's 2012 impact factor increased.
  • Because of font and format improvements, article content has increased 50%.
  • Geriatric Nursing has three articles among Elsevier's 25 top-selling articles in journals related to Geriatric Medicine.
Geriatric Nursing is dedicated to getting new and innovative information focused on care of older adults out to nurses and nurse researchers working across all levels of care. The journal is read by those working in long term care settings, acute care hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, as well as the community and researchers interested in improving the care provided and lives of older adults internationally. In addition to study and project outcome papers, please consider submitting manuscripts focused on methods related to research when working with older adults as well as specific aspects of projects and research studies. This could include such topics as: the theoretical support and description of an effective intervention, the development and testing of a new measure, or an innovative recruitment approach. We invite and encourage student work and will provide some level of guidance through the publication process. Please take the time to write up your work and share it with others so that we at Geriatric Nursing can help to improve the care and quality of life of our ever growing number of older adults in the United States and Internationally.
