We are very proud to announce the Suzanne Smith Mentoring Editors Awardees for 2020!

I am very interested in expanding my knowledge of nursing publication…I currently serve as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Midwifery & Women’s Health and have been a guest editor for an issue of the Journal of Perinatal and Neonatal Nursing but would like additional training to prepare me for greater engagement with editing and journal publication…I have been interested in the annual INANE conference but I have never had to opportunity to attend. I am excited to be at the conference in 2020.

I am a new Editor in Chief at Nursing Administration Quarterly (NAQ), and am very excited to be in this role. I know it will be a career highlight. In the past, I have been a reviewer and editorial board member of other journals but the EIC role is new to me and I know I will have a learning curve…This is the year of the nurse and we need to promote and share how we make a difference. Thank you for your consideration!

Walter DeCaro

Walter DeCaro, Editor, Professioni Intermieristiche
Mentor: Fiona Timmins, Editor-in-Chief, Nursing Management

As editor of Italian based journal is not easy in a context that does not see many scientific journals in the Italian language and in which academic authors prefer to publish in journal with greater audience…I’m working hard to improve this journal at next level and moving to publish not only Italian articles but English language articles in the European area. I’m working to assure that the integrity and reputation of the journal is improved and maintained at all times and for improvements to the overall editorial structure.

Mentor: Peggy Chinn, Editor, Advances in Nursing Science

I yearn to have more of an impact. In my current role as Associate Editor. I have the capacity to help many more nurses find their voice though publication of their important research findings. My hope is that I will help to broaden nurses’ visibility within the scientific community and solidify their role as the trusted professionals their patients and colleagues know them to be.
