Aim and scope


Journal of Perioperative Nursing (JPN) aims to be a trusted source of knowledge for perioperative nurses so they can provide patients with safe, effective evidence-based care.


JPN publishes original research articles, reviews, discussion papers, case studies and project reports on all aspects of perioperative nursing spanning the period from a patients referral for surgery through to their discharge and full recovery.

The target audience of the journal is nurses caring for perioperative and peri-procedural patients in the pre-admission clinic, day surgery, interventional suite, operating theatre, recovery room, and surgical ward.

Multidisciplinary and international submissions that address the journal’s aim and are relevant to the global perioperative nursing community are welcomed.
