Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite papers to this Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health that will explore the contribution of nurses to society. The year 2020 has been considered by the World Health Organization has the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife. This serves as an incentive for this Special Issue, to support the visibility of the contribution of nurses to society, emphasizing the crucial role of nurses in achieving greater attention to community health and the social and environmental determinants that intervene in the health of the population.

Nurses are at the heart of most health teams, playing an essential role in health promotion, as well as in disease prevention and treatment. Because they are the health professionals closest to the population, they play a special role in the development of new models of community care and support the efforts made at the local level to promote health and prevent disease.

For this Special Issue, we invite you to submit articles on high-quality original research or reviews that provide new robust discoveries broadening current knowledge. All manuscripts will be reviewed by experts in the field, and must be submitted no later than 1 March 2021.
