The review of the most recent journal articles in the Journal of Nursing Education, The Journal of Nursing Research, and The Journal of Nursing Administration have indicated the active discussion of urgent issues. Articles in the current issue of the Journal of Nursing Education address such problems as nursing students’ stress, experiences of Latino students, cultural diversity, ageism, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on curricula (Rapoza et al., 2021). These topics are debated in the context of improving the education for nurses to make it more up-to-date and addressing nursing educators’ and students’ needs.
In The Journal of Nursing Research, various topics are covered in the published results of quantitative and qualitative studies. These topics reflect current gaps in the field of nursing that require further research and examination (McEwen & Wills, 2019). The issues include the aspects of person-centered care, older people’s care in hospitals, surgery issues, organ transplantation, and others. However, it is important to note that, in the recent issue of The Journal of Nursing Research, there are no articles on nursing care in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The topics addressed in The Journal of Nursing Administration are associated with the issues of organizing effective nursing care, leadership, nursing empowerment, job performance, and cultural diversity, among others. These questions are traditionally interesting to researchers specializing in nursing administration and management. The provided information is important for practicing nurse leaders and administrators to use when performing their everyday activities. The analysis of topics in nursing journals supports the idea that nurses can find a lot of essential data on the latest trends and findings in their specific areas to improve practice.
