Call for Papers for a Special Issue of JNP: The Journal for Nurse Practitioners: Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases
JNP: The Journal for Nurse Practitioners is planning a special issue on emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, especially infections that are impacted by our global community or are associated with long-term or serious sequelae. Widespread travel impacts not only the nature of infections encountered by nurse practitioners but also treatment options. Primary care nurse practitioners need to be aware of these infections and understand how to prevent, screen for, diagnose, and treat them. They also need to appreciate the role of primary care in the diagnosis and treatment of these infections and recognize when specialty referral is appropriate.
If you have expertise in infectious diseases or a particular infection, we invite your submission of an article to this issue, which will publish in early 2015. The guest editor is Ann Marie Hart, PhD, FNP-BC, associate professor and DNP program coordinator at the University of Wyoming.
We are interested in the following topics:
-- Pandemic Influenza
-- C. Difficile
-- Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus
-- Sexually transmitted diseases
-- Ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis
-- Infectious meningitis
We are seeking feature articles (4,000 to 5,000 words inclusive) and brief reports (2000-2500 words) that describe the etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of global or serious infections, as well as the role of primary care versus specialty care providers in their management. Authors may also include links to websites, applications or demonstrations; video demonstrations up to 3 minutes; audio files; and multiple photos, forms, documents or figures that illustrate the text.
Manuscripts should be submitted to ees.elsevier.com/jnp by August 15, 2014. Authors should consult the Guide for Authors there and use the Article Type “Special Issue—Infectious Diseases” when uploading submissions. Queries can be directed to Marilyn Edmunds, Editor in Chief, at email@example.com.
