Nursing Education Perspectives:
The NLN Research Journal

Mission Statement: The Premier Nurse Education Journal for Scholarship in Nursing Education

A publication of the National League for Nursing since 1980, Nursing Education Perspectives (NEP) is a peer-reviewed, bimonthly journal that provides evidence for best practices in nursing education. Through the publication of rigorously designed studies, the journal contributes to the advancement of the science of nursing education. It serves as a forum for research and innovation regarding teaching and learning, curricula, technology, and other issues important to nursing education. Today, as nurse educators strive to advance research in nursing education and break away from established patterns and chart new pathways in nursing education, Nursing Education Perspectives is a vital resource for NLN Members.
