JTN's mission is to provide original articles and information that reflect the practice of trauma nursing in the areas of clinical practice, education, health policy and administration, and research. JTN focuses on innovations, trends and important issues that have an impact on the trauma patient and trauma nursing. JTN is intended for all professionals involved in trauma care, from first responder through rehabilitation.

Coming in 2014 – 6 Issues of JTN

Sometimes a good thing continues to get better. Our quarterly journal has served the needs of trauma nurses well but starting in 2014 it will be even better! Six issues per year. You will continue to receive your quarterly print edition plus two online only editions will be added.

There will however be a cost -- more people will be needed to share their stories, research, ideas and experience. More editions require more articles. Have an idea for an article? Email Kathryn Schroeter at
