Biological Research For Nursing - Integrating Biobehavioral Research into Health Care

Genetic and genomic discoveries impact all areas of healthcare practice, from providing insight into new treatments to supporting disease-prevention strategies to guiding development of personalized health interventions. Nursing research has made, and will continue to make, significant contributions to the growing body of evidence that informs our understanding of the role of genes and genomics in health and illness. From bench to bedside to population health, nursing research is at the forefront of translating basic science into clinical and community applications.

The goal of this special issue is to disseminate cutting-edge findings of genetic and genomic research that have the potential to impact nursing practice and to improve health outcomes across the spectrum of healthcare practice. Submission of basic, clinical, and population genetic and/or genomics research relevant to nursing practice is encouraged. Deadline to submit a manuscript is July 21, 2017.

We are asking ISONG members to consider the following:

1) Submitting a manuscript to be considered for publication in the special issue;

2) Volunteering as a manuscript reviewer.

NOTE: It is preferred that reviewers have one or more first-authored publications within the past 5 years. If you are interested in reviewing and are not already a reviewer for BRN, please feel free to email Gia Mudd-Martin at to submit your name for consideration as a reviewer. Also include in the email your area or areas of expertise.

Also please remember that reviewing is an important component of professional service and be sure to highlight such service as part of your CV!

  • generating new knowledge
  • translating new evidence into clinical practice
  • evaluating the evidence base, and
  • considering the implications of new knowledge for nursing practice and education, for patients, their families and the wider communities

Our membership acts as a global network that further enables us to disseminate and share best practice, exchange ideas, and encourages collaboration, so that the global implications of local projects can be more readily identified and discussed. To facilitate this, these research pages aim to:

  • disseminate news of research to our key stakeholders
  • alert members to research opportunities
  • support the research activities of ISONG members
