Orthopaedic Nursing Journal

Orthopaedic Nursing is the official journal of the National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses. With six issues per calendar year, this international journal provides continuing education for orthopaedic nurses and focuses on a wide variety of clinical settings including hospital unit, physician's office, ambulatory care centers, emergency room, operating room, rehabilitation facility, community service programs, the client's home, and more.

The journal provides departmental sections on current events, organizational activities, research, product and drug information, and literature findings. Articles reflect a commitment to professional development and the nursing profession as well as clinical, administrative, academic, and research areas of the orthopaedic specialty. 

The National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses (NAON) and Lippincott Williams & Wilkins are pleased to join together and present the Orthopaedic Nursing website. This site was constructed to provide online access to important information and materials to NAON members, journal subscribers and other site visitors.
