Journal of Trauma Nursing

The Journal of Trauma Nursing is the only peer reviewed journal dedicated to trauma nursing. It is the official publication of the Society of Trauma Nursing.
There will be six Issues of JTN in 2014!


Trauma Awareness Month, Week 2

May is National Trauma Awareness Month. In 1988, Ronald Reagan recognized the need for trauma awareness and established May as the month for us to dedicate our time and resources to increasing education and prevention activities.

The Society of Trauma Nurses has compiled resources for you to use during National Trauma Awareness Month. In an effort to address the continuum of care, we will focus on different trauma topics each week of the month. Members will receive weekly emails announcing the topics and availability of resources to share with your departments and communities.

We encourage you to take advantage of this time to ensure optimal trauma care to all people!
