The Journal of Continuing Education in Nursing (JCEN), published by SLACK Incorporated, has been inducted into the International Academy of Nursing Editors (INANE) Nursing Journal Hall of Fame. JCEN was established in 1970 and has built a reputation for important research and education on continuing competence in nursing practice in all health care settings.

Nicoll, PhD, MBA, RN, FAAN and executive volunteer of INANE stated: “The five honored journals are international in scope and cumulatively represent 412 years of scholarly publication in nursing. The journals are a cross section of professional nursing practice, research, education, and leadership and demonstrate depth in nursing excellence and scholarship through the published literature.”

Debra Hagler, PhD, RN, ACNS-BC, CNE, CHSE, ANEF, FAAN, Deputy Editor, and Patricia Yoder-Wise, EdD, RN, NEA-BC, FAONL, FAAN, ANEF, Editor-in-Chief, made this statement about the recognition: “It is with great honor that we receive the INANE award on behalf of JCEN’s greater contribution to nursing editorial excellence. It cannot go unspoken that we are only building upon the journal’s 50-year legacy of providing impactful research and literature to nursing professionals and educators around the world.”

The Journal of Continuing Education in Nursing joins the Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Mental Health Services (JPN) and the Journal of Nursing Education (JNE) as the three SLACK journals that have received this honor.
