The Journal of Nursing Theory and Practice (JNTP) is an open access publication using the Open Source Journal (OSJ) resources contracted by UCLan. We aim to publish online bi-annually and welcome articles on nursing, healthcare and midwifery topics that develop a critical conversation. We welcome articles generated by our students, staff from the School of Nursing and Midwifery (SoNM), and externally, whether inexperienced or experienced authors.
