Welcome to the home page of the new JOURNAL OF ART AND AESTHETICS IN NURSING AND HEALTH SCIENCES! The journal has grown over the years. From humble beginnings in 1990 as a forum for nurses to share their stories in poems and vignettes, this journal now reaches across disciplines and across the world to embrace the grand scope of human caring as fundamental in the health sciences, and indeed, in living.
Our mission remains constant but the possibilities have grown exponentially with the versatility of the electronic medium. JOURNAL OF ART AND AESTHETICS IN NURSING AND HEALTH SCIENCES is a forum for nursing and the horizon of the health sciences disciplines to share expressions of caring in art forms that include poetry, essays, dance, paintings, sculptures, music, and other aesthetic illustrations.
Our Journal is published two times per year in electronic format, with our first e-journal issue in 2013. You are able to access all other issues online as well – simply click on the Journal Issues in the menu.
May we invite you to browse our website to learn more about the Journal, and then to consider submitting your own aesthetic creation. We will guide you through the process.
