The AJN staff works hard to produce editorial content that will inspire, engage, and inform our readers. Our mission is to promote excellence in nursing and health care through the dissemination of evidence-based, peer-reviewed clinical information and original research, discussion of relevant and controversial professional issues, adherence to the standards of journalistic integrity and excellence, and promotion of nursing perspectives to the health care community and the public.

The Magnum Opus awards focus on publications in many different industries, not just health care. Competing against other industries and being recognized as winners in an award like this fuels us to work even harder. We appreciate the acknowledgment and thank everyone involved in creating and delivering such excellent work. The work doesn’t stop here!—Amanda Geer, administrative coordinator
