Creative Nursing: A Journal of Values, Issues, Experience, and Collaboration has been a voice for healthcare thought leaders and innovators since 1981. Founded by nursing pioneer and award-winning author Marie Manthey, Creative Nursing is a themed peer-reviewed quarterly professional journal. Each issue brings readers insights into topics of interest to healthcare professionals from various practice settings.

Creative Nursing is an international online peer-reviewed professional journal, published continuously for more than 40 years (initially as Primary Nursing), and quarterly since 2007. We are a themed journal, with an overarching theme for each year and quarterly themed issues related to the year's theme. Each issue of Creative Nursing brings readers insights into topics of interest to healthcare professionals from various practice settings worldwide. Creative Nursing is edited by healthcare professionals from various practice settings worldwide. Creative Nursing is edited by healthcare professionals who love our professions and have a vision for their futures. Article submissions from all walks of life are welcome and will receive respectful consideration. We strive to foster diverse perspectives and experiences, and invite contributors with unique insights, backgrounds, and expertise to join this inclusive dialogue. We especially welcome submissions from novice authors, and work with them to prepare robust, scholarly content. Articles accepted for potential publication undergo anonymous review by content experts in nursing or relevant related fields. The name of our journal reflects our historical origin as a publication about Primary Nursing, but we encourage and publish interprofessional articles from all healthcare disciplines around the world.

Creative Nursing is a voice for innovation, insight, and authentic focus on those we serve. Our articles highlight creativity in caring for those we serve, in educating healthcare professionals, and in addressing the structures that determine health and wellbeing. Our primary audience is nurses and allied health professionals worldwide, from newly graduated and early-career nurses to established practitioners, educators, and entrepreneurs in academia, healthcare organizations, and independent practice.

Creative Nursing is published in English, but we welcome supplemental material in other languages and will work to include it whenever possible. We regularly accept for consideration international articles with English fluency issues, and work with these authors to achieve intelligibility and readability.
