Nursing in Asia and the Pacific Islands regions is a rapidly growing group of professionals and includes the fastest-growing minority group in America. Yet one of the greatest challenges is finding information about these groups in publications which examine their health, disparities, immigration and acculturation challenges, health education needs, policy implications, clinical practice, and responses to varied interventions in acute care and community settings. Asian / Pacific Island Nursing Journal assists researchers, educators, and practitioners in meeting these important challenges.

Asian / Pacific Island Nursing Journal: Official Journal of the Asian American / Pacific Islander Nurses Association is a peer-reviewed, open access journal, which covers all aspects of nursing and patient care practices in Asia and the Pacific Island regions. The journal includes research papers, empirical and theoretical articles, discussion pieces, editorials, abstracts of recent dissertations, and conference summaries that relate to API health and clinical care in disciplines, such as:

  • Clinical and Developmental Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Social Work, Public Health, Education, Genetics, Pharmacology, Infectious Disease, Oncology, Cardiovascular Disease, Pulmonary Function and Disease, Dermatology, Wound Healing, Immunology, Anesthesiology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Hematology, Neonatology, Nephrology, Pathology, Physiology, Nutrition, Pain Management, Sleep Disturbances, Dental, and Mental Health.

Indexed in the DOAJ, PMC, and EBSCO.
