Get Published in Imprint!

Imprint seeks your articles! We are looking for a wide variety of articles by nursing students for possible publication. The listing below highlights the editorial focuses for upcoming issues. Keep them in mind if you are thinking of article ideas. The suggested length for features is 1200-1500 words. We are also seeking submissions for Imprint columns including:

  • "Reflections", which highlights memorable or emotional experiences with patients;
  • "Happenings", which highlights state and school chapter activities; please send us photos of your activities as well.
  • "Up Close" nominations of an outstanding nursing student (and NSNA member) to be profiled in an upcoming issue.
  • "Write On", the "letters to the editor" section of Imprint. Love something in Imprint? Hate it? Tell us about it and why. Or tell us about a nursing related issue.


all individuals must sign official NSNA photo disclaimers before being published. NSNA can provide these upon request. Electronic photos or jpegs need to be high resolution, publishable quality (300 dpi). Copies of web site photos do not reproduce well and are not accepted.  To submit the photo release yourself, download the form here and submit with photos when you submit your manuscript.
