Nursing Journal Peer Reviewed
The journal Nursing is a peer-reviewed publication that publishes original research, reviews, and clinical practice. It also contains opinion pieces and editorials on current issues in the nursing field.
Clinical Practice articles are about the application of research to clinical practice. The authors must base their recommendations on the best available evidence, which is generally defined as systematic reviews (including meta-analyses) and large randomized controlled trials.

Health policy is the set of rules, guidelines and procedures used to guide decision making within health care. Health policies are determined at all levels of government, as well as by private organizations and individuals.
Health policies can be divided into two categories:
- Primary care policies are those concerned with improving access to primary care services (e.g., doctor’s office) and the quality of primary care delivered (e.g., how it is reimbursed).
- Secondary care policies are those concerned with improving access to specialty or hospital-based services, and the quality of these specialized services delivered (e.g., how they’re reimbursed).
Research articles are often published in a specific research journal. This is important to keep in mind, as it will determine how you find these articles and how they can be used to support your own work.

Continuing education is any educational activity that helps your nursing career or job performance. It can be done in a classroom setting or online, and it can involve pre-recorded videos, podcasts, live webinars, articles or other forms of material that improve your knowledge base. The purpose of continuing education is to keep you up-to-date on new technologies and best practices in healthcare.
Continuing professional development (CPD) is an umbrella term used by some employers when they require employees to complete certain amounts of continuing education each year. CPD is not the same as CE; instead, it refers specifically to training programs that are required for professional accreditation purposes.
Opinion/Editorials and Letters to the Editor
- An opinion piece is an article written by a professional in the field that expresses their views on an issue. Opinion pieces may offer evidence or reasoning to support their position, but they are not required to do so.
- A letter to the editor is a short response written by a reader in response to an article previously published in the journal. Letters should be no more than 200 words and must adhere strictly to word count requirements (no more than 750 words). Letters may also be edited for length by editors prior to publication.

Books and Media Reviews
Reviews of books, movies and other media are written by nursing professionals. A review is an in-depth description of the book or film and how effective it is at communicating a message. These reviews are written by people who have read the book or seen the movie because they want to provide information about it to others. Reviews can be found on blogs, websites, newspapers and magazines for free. They are also available for purchase online through Amazon if you would like your own copy of these reviews for future reference or professional development purposes (examples include: “The Nursing Student’s Guide To Passing Your Boards: How To Pass Your Boards Without Becoming A Bookworm Or Losing Your Mind”).
