Nurse leaders in practice, administration, and education have exciting ideas and innovations that would be beneficial to share with others. However, many are not familiar with the writing and publishing process and thus sharing through the professional literature, a traditional communication channel, can be a daunting task. In this workshop, Dr. Leslie Nicoll will use “Manuscript Success” as a method to demystify the publishing process and provide practical evidence-based strategies for achieving publication goals. Using presentation, audience participation, questions, and discussion, participants will gain knowledge and confidence in how to write manuscripts that will be favorably received by editors and reviewers. Identifying and overcoming pitfalls, ethical issues, and effective use of resources will also be discussed.

Learner Objectives:

  • State the five steps in the Manuscript Success process.
  • Describe two strategies authors can use that enhance manuscript acceptance.
