Turn accusations into affirmations: transform nurses into published authors.

Author information

University of Hartford, Division of Nursing, West Hartford, Connecticut, USA.


Although nurse educators bemoan the fact that many of their students cannot write, writing for publication is fast becoming an expectation of master's and doctorally prepared nurses. Since master's students must submit a publishable product to graduate from the authors' program, a writing-for-publication workshop was developed that introduces sequential steps in the publishing process, including peer editing. This article outlines the systematic way in which graduate students are introduced to writing for publication. Strategies are presented that turn faculty and students into a community of scholarly caring.
