An analysis from the International Centre on Nurse Migration shows limited pay growth and decreasing purchasing power for nurses around the world. Based on pay data collected over 10 years by the International Council of Nurses (ICN), the report shows an urgent need to give the world's nurses a pay raise and improve working conditions in order to attract more qualified individuals to the profession.

TV News Coverage of KING 2017 Conference
A television reporter interviewed Dr. Lachel Story and Dr. Christina Sieloff about the 2017 conference (link below):
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Pre-print article* (The draft of an article that has been submitted to a journal, but not peer-reviewed or edited.)
As-published article* (The version that appears in the print and/or online journal.)
Post-print article* (The version of an article that has been submitted to a journal, peer-reviewed and edited.)
DNP capstone project/paper
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 e-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 http://www.nursinglibrary.org/vh1/pages/FAQ.html)
The following is a link to their author information page (Author Assistant Page: http://www.nursinglibrary.org/vhl/pages/Author_Info.html). 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 (email@example.com).

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 thinkchecksubmit.org 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.
