The Journal of Aesthetic Nursing is a journal to be launched in 2012 by The Mark Allen Group who have over 50 medical titles in their portfolio. The aim is to have a peer reviewed independent journal for aesthetic nurses.
They were finalising the board towards the end of last year and following talks with the editors who felt that my experience in medical aesthetics, coupled with their reciprocal understanding of my personal approach to aesthetic nursing, I am delighted to say that on the 12th October 2011 I was asked if I would join the board.
As a board member I am expected to produce written work and to participate in a separate peer review panel….this provides the opportunity to support the aesthetic nursing family as it grows and develops. The board and journal are very much supported by, and are supportive of, the BACN, of which I have been a member since its conception.
