Journal of Professional Nursing Now Hosted Exclusively at ScienceDirect Website

Published December 12, 2018

To streamline access and reduce confusion of having multiple websites, Elsevier is undertaking a consolidation of its products and channels that deliver digital journal content. As part of this consolidation, the former website ( for the Journal of Professional Nursing (JPN) has been removed.  JPN readers are redirected to the journal homepage on the ScienceDirect platform, which is now the dedicated website for JPN.

  • ScienceDirect offers a search functionality with state-of-the-art relevance ranking, so readers can spend less time scrolling through search results.
  • ScienceDirect is easy to use on any device: its new mobile-responsive design scales automatically to the size of the screen.
  • ScienceDirect articles are enriched with useful features to help readers understand the article — for example, complex terms are hyperlinked to a topic page with relevant snippets from scientific books and reference works explaining the term

Current subscribers will continue to receive print issues and have digital access to the journal content, based on the subscription model they purchased. Subscribers will have the option to renew their subscription and continue to access the journal on ScienceDirect.
