Nurses and other health care professionals practicing at the interface of the health and criminal justice systems are faced with daily challenges unique to their roles, the clientele they work with, and the environments in which they practice. The first national conference focusing on nurses working in the forensic milieu was hosted by the College of Nursing, University of Saskatchewan and the Regional Psychiatric Centre, Correctional Service Canada in 1989, and has been held biennially since then.

Peggy L. Chinn, RN, Ph, FAAN
Professor Emerita, University of Connecticut
Editor, Advances in Nursing Science

The primary purposes of Advances in Nursing Science (ANS) are to advance the development of nursing knowledge and to promote the integration of nursing philosophies, theories and research with practice. While the journal provides scholarly articles that have relevance for all health-related disciplines, we are particularly committed to claiming nursing’s rightful place in the development of health knowledge. We expect high scholarly merit and encourage innovative, cutting edge ideas that challenge prior assumptions and that present new, intellectually challenging perspectives. We seek works that speak to global sustainability and that take an intersectional approach, recognizing class, color, sexual and gender identity, and other dimensions of human experience related to health. Manuscripts can be based on any methodology, including scholarly inquiry/research, philosophic and theoretic analysis/synthesis, integrative reviews, and original exploration of diverse approaches to creating nursing knowledge. All submissions must include a statement that addresses the significance of the work for the evolution of the discipline of nursing.
