The American Journal of Nursing (AJN) has recognized the best nursing and healthcare publications of 2013 with an announcement of its Book of the Year Award recipients. Winners in 17 separate categories appear in the journal's January issue.
AJN, "the leading voice of nursing since 1900", is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, part of Wolters Kluwer Health.
Since 1969, the AJN has been announcing its annual list of the best in nursing publishing. The AJN Book of the Year program is a prestigious competition that garners the attention of its broad-based readership and half a million others who read the journal online or on the iPad.
The most valuable texts of each year are chosen by AJN's panel of judges. Only books published between August of the prior year and August of the award year are eligible.
There were no winners chosen in the Electronic Media and Gerontologic Nursing categories.
Founded in 1900, the American Journal of Nursing (AJN) is nursing's premier journal and recognized world-wide. The journal was the only nursing journal named among the top 100 journals of the century by the biomedical division of the Special Libraries Association.
