If you are not currently registered in the Online Journal of Rural Nursing and Health Care (OJRNHC) as a reader, author, or reviewer, you will need to become registered prior to submitting a manuscript for consideration for publication. The system has been altered to protect user privacy and prevent hacks into the manuscript management system. Being registered to use the journal is not the same as being a member of the Rural Nurse Organization (although that is also required for a manuscript submission). For those who wish to upload a manuscript for review in the Online Journal of Rural Nursing and Health Care, please note that you need to first be registered as an account user. If you are already a user, you follow the normal process for submission. If you are not registered with the journal, you need to email your contact information including name, credentials, and affiliation, to one of the following contacts:

Pamela Stewart Fahs, Editor in Chief at

Erin Rushton, Managing Editor at

Barbara Ann Graves, Associate Editor at

During the Academic Year only: Allison Roma, Assistant Editor at

One of our editorial staff will enter your data into the system and you will receive a notification that you have a user account. Once you are entered into the system you will be able to follow the directions in the author guidelines and upload a manuscript for review. Anyone can see and read articles from the journal without being registered journal user.

Dear authors of manuscripts submitted to the Online Journal of Rural Nursing and Health Care. The format for any submissions to the journal is the APA 7th ed. publication manual.
