NHIVNA National HIV Nursing Journal

We are delighted to let our NHIVNA members know that we are going to be working collaboratively with MA Healthcare Ltd (MAH), the publishers of the British Journal of Nursing (BJN), to publish the new NHIVNA National HIV Nursing Journal, published NHIVNA members as a supplement within the BJN.

The National HIV Nursing Journal will be published twice a year, in January and June, launching in January 2022.

It will be bound-in to the BJN and distributed to all BJN subscribers as well as all NHIVNA members.

The National HIV Nursing Journal will be the official publication of NHIVNA and will carry a strap line on its front cover confirming this relationship with NHIVNA, together with the NHIVNA logo.

The National HIV Nursing Journal will be distributed free to all paid up members of NHIVNA.

The National HIV Nursing Journal will also appear on www.magonlinelibrary.com as a supplement to BJN, with all published articles also on the global PubMed/MEDLINE library under the BJN listing.

NHIVNA has nominated four members to the editorial board – Liz Foote, John McLuskey, Michelle Croston and Ian Hodgson.

MAH will also produce an e-newsletter twice a year in April and October, which will be sent to NHIVNA members and the wider BJN audience. This e-newsletter will include news stories, sector updates, and industry updates, as well as a link to a digital edition of the National HIV Nursing Journal.

Thank you all for your patience during this interim period when we have had no journal as we have endeavoured to secure the right relationship for NHIVNA and our journal. We believe this is an exciting opportunity for NHIVNA and this will open up many doors. We encourage you all to write articles and please send them in to the editorial board for peer review.
