The Journal of Nursing Education is a monthly peer-reviewed nursing journal. It was established in 1962 and is abstracted and indexed in MEDLINE.


The Journal of Nursing Education began as a quarterly journal published by McGraw-Hill. The first editor-in-chief was Alice Bicknell, although she was supplanted by a small editorial board in the journal's second year.[1] This editorial board continued their oversight until 1981, at which time SLACK Incorporated became the journal's publisher and assigned Margaret Carnine as its editor.[1] As of August 2012, the editor-in-chief is Janis P. Bellack (MGH Institute of Health Professions).[2]

In 2002, the journal increased from nine issues per year to 12.[1]
