Your scholarly work, related to Imogene King's work, is needed to be submitted to
the Virginia Henderson Global Nursing e-repository

The King International Nursing Group has just established an Events collection on the Virginia Henderson Global Nursing e-repository so that abstracts and slides from our biannual conferences can be included on the e-repository.

We are also hoping to establish another collection, associated with the K.I.N.G., that would include all documents/scholarly efforts that use Imogene King's work and related theories. As a result, I am writing to encourage you, your colleagues and any nursing students to consider submitting their work to this e-repository. It is a wonderful way to, without cost, disseminate one's work globally. Submission can include, but are not limited to:

? Pre-print article* (The draft of an article that has been submitted to a journal, but not peer-reviewed or edited.)
? Post-print article* (The version of an article that has been submitted to a journal, peer-reviewed and edited.)
? As-published article* (The version that appears in the print and/or online journal.) 
? Dissertation
? DNP capstone project/paper
? Thesis 
? Class project
? Committee Report
? Research Study Report
? Dataset (raw data from survey results, etc.)**
? Faculty created learning objects
? Presentation papers and/or slides
*Authors are responsible for determining the version allowed for deposit by the publisher/journal prior to submitting it to the Henderson Repository. See the Sherpa/RoMEO database.
** All data must be scrubbed of personal information prior to submission.”
(Sigma Theta Tau International, 2017, FAQs. Retrieved from 

The following is a link to their author information page  (Author Assistant Page: Please remind them to add"King International Nursing Group" to the description field during the submission process so that they may be identified from other submissions. Once 100 submissions have been approved and posted, we could work on having them copied to a separate K.I.N.G. collection.

Thank you so much for your help in disseminating nurses' work related to the work of Dr. King.

Please let me know if you have any questions (

                                                                                                      BE AWARE OF PREDATORY PUBLISHING

The NIH recently issued a statement on predatory journals, encouraging authors to be alert to them and offering resources for identifying credible journals. And last month, the Public Library of Science posted an excellent article, “To Catch a Predatory Publisher,” that discusses red flags to look for.  
We’ve heard from many authors who receive invitations to submit articles based on papers they’ve published. Many of these seem to come from journals or organizations that are unscrupulous and have been termed “predatory publishers.” (See the April 2015 AJN editorial on this topic.) While there are many credible open access journals, some are taking advantage of this new model and there are many pseudo-scholarly journals that make up Impact Factors, list editorial board members without their permission, and don’t adhere to acceptable peer review or ethical editorial practices. They often have hidden and exorbitant author fees. (And now they are branching out into conferences, too.) Please be careful about where you choose to publish as these journals have no standing in the academic community; most credible journals (AJN included) do not accept citations from these journals. Before submitting to an unfamiliar journal, go to for information you should know. Check to see if the journal is listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals or check with a librarian.

ONLINE COURSE! Earn 1 contact hour!
In today's ever-changing environment, many health care organizations continue to strive to provide equitable care for patients who identity as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ). Approximately eight percent of LGBTQ individuals surveyed, and nearly 27 percent of transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals, reported being denied necessary health care (National Women's Law Center, 2014). Heterosexism impedes the provision of culturally competent care for the LGBTQ population (Schwinn & Dinkel, 2015), which indicates there are still many gaps in understanding how to provide the best care.
Knowing how LGBTQ individuals identify themselves, what their support systems are, and how their relationships and identity impact their health are critical in helping to ask the right questions, and make the best decisions, to meet each patient's unique needs. Take this course and arm yourself with tools and resources to help you overcome these issues and enhance person-centered care for a more effective and satisfying patient experience.
In this course, you will:
  • Gain a deeper understanding of health care disparities experienced by the LGBTQ community
  • Develop a plan that combats bias and discrimination against LGBTQ communities in the provision of health care
  • Integrate the tools and resources available to identify and evaluate practice behaviors impacting quality of care for the LGBTQ community

This course is designed with brain-based learning principles that let you:

  • Learn at your own pace
  • Participate in interactive, problem-based learning (case studies)
  • Watch video presentations
  • Gain resources and tools for practice
  • Engage in discussion with peer-to-peer discussion boards
Presenter: Tanya Friese, DNP, RN, CNL, USN (Ret.)
Dr. Friese is Assistant Professor in the College of Nursing and Vice Chair of the Rush University Medical Center's LGBTQ Health Committee. She has participated in multiple interprofessional research initiatives at Rush to coordinate and improve care for underserved populations, as well as integrating material into the university curriculum.

The AHA today released a one-page guideto help hospital and health system board members and leaders in vulnerable communities
implement a multi-step strategy to address the underlying social conditions that often prevent individuals from being able to access
health care or achieve health goals. The strategy is one of nine innovative strategiesidentified last year by the AHA's Task Force on
Ensuring Access in Vulnerable Communities for communities to consider based on their unique needs, support structures and
preferences. Today's guide is the third in a series that will address each of the nine strategies. It also builds on the AHA's ongoing

Great resource for developing manuscripts

I have come across a great resource I wanted to share. It's a free open course through the University of Utah done by Dr. Patricia Moran. It is titled " Writing for Professional Journals". There are about 8 modules with a mix of short video lectures on a variety of topics like, why publish, how to query a journal, and the process of getting a manuscript published. They are well done.
Here is the Link:
