In January, one of two official journals for members of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) is open and available free to all readers — start reading today!

JAANP is a monthly, scholarly, peer-reviewed journal that provides cutting-edge information on practice, education, advocacy, research and leadership for all nurse practitioners (NPs) and others who have an interest in the NP role. Each regular, monthly issue of JAANP includes a mix of clinical, educational and policy topics. The journal focuses on new research, educational innovations in NP programs, policy analyses and other original works. It also publishes occasional case studies that are of broad interest to NPs. There are two regular columns: The "Fellows Speak" highlights perspectives of AANP Fellows, and "Unraveling the Genome" provides in-depth information on the clinical application of genetic and genomic advances.

Each year in January, the first issue of JAANP is open to the public so that NPs and others who are not AANP members can read full-text articles and better understand why JAANP is such a valuable member benefit. Get a sneak peek into JAANP by reviewing the highlights below, and read the January 2021 issue today!

2020 Highlights From JAANP

In 2020, JAANP’s impact factor once again increased, reflecting an article citation rate of more than 1.4 for the prior two years. The journal featured authors from multiple disciplines, including NPs and other colleagues with an interest in the NP role.

Three issues of JAANP were planned around special themes last year. In July, the focus was on integrated approaches to managing obesity. In September, several aspects of NP professional development were addressed, and in November, the entire issue focused on military and veterans’ health care.

Subject matter in the journal regularly includes primary care and all NP specialties, with feature articles covering a variety of workforce topics and policy issues that directly impact NP care and the NP role alongside articles of interest to those who care for special populations. Another regular and popular topic addressed by JAANP authors is innovations in NP education.
