The delivery of health care to people living in rural and remote geographical locations continues to focus on addressing the complex and unique factors that surround service inequities: financial and human resources, transportation, access to health promotion/prevention information, culturally appropriate services, medical specialists, and the integration of health care technologies. The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the work of rural and remote nurses. We encourage contributions from authors with a lens on health innovation, interprofessional practice, continuing education, vulnerable populations and in addition to a focus on rural and remote nurses, nursing practice and patient care. Topics can include original research, rural and remote research methods, program evaluations, concept analyses and literature reviews.
