As the weather starts warming up, and the sun is actually shining, many start making plans for the summer. A highlight of the summer is the annual INANE conference, held to promote
editorial excellence in nursing. The INANE conference provides opportunities for editors to meet and network with other editors to share their experiences. At the INANE conference editors receive the latest updates in publishing and strategies for ensuring editorial excellence. Margaret Comerford Freda was an editor who exemplified excellence in editorial leadership in nursing. Therefore, in 2012 the Margaret Comerford Freda Leadership Award for editorial leadership in nursing was established. Currently, the criteria and application for the Margaret Comerford Freda Leadership Award are available on the INANE website. Please consider nominating a nurse editor who demonstrates editorial leadership in nursing for the Margaret Comerford Freda Leadership Award. Applications for the 2018 Margaret Comerford Freda Leadership Award are due April 15th, 2018. Here is the form!
