With the support of our highly skilled clinicians, researchers and educators, the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) develops and distributes several different publications on a wide variety of advanced practice nursing and child health issues. In addition, we are proud to partner with other groups to produce high quality resources for our members and other pediatric healthcare providers.
Journal of Pediatric Health Care (JPHC)
The Journal of Pediatric Health Care (JPHC), our official journal, provides scholarly clinical information and research regarding primary, acute and specialty health care for children of newborn age through young adulthood within a family-centered context. The Journal disseminates multidisciplinary perspectives on evidence-based practice and emerging policy, advocacy and educational issues that are of importance to all healthcare professionals caring for children and their families.
The work in JPHC continues to be guided by our strategic plan: increasing access to knowledge about emerging evidence-based innovations that pertain to the health care of children and facilitating the translation of evidence into practice to improve health outcomes. Journal editors and contributors also work closely with our continuing education team to provide continuing education (CE) contact hours, particularly in pharmacology.
Thanks to the high-quality writing and expert editorial efforts, JPHC is currently ranked 22nd out of 116 ranked nursing journals, 55th out of 120 medical pediatric journals and 39th out of 74 health policy and services journals.
All members receive a hard copy of the journal and have the option to download the app to read issues digitally.

Pediatric Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd EditionCo-published with the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) and the Society of Pediatric Nurses (SPN). The American Nurses Association (ANA) and a work group of pediatric nurse experts from across their specialty and representing seven professional organizations convened to update and expand the 2008 edition to accommodate ongoing and anticipated changes in their specialty and health care. With input from numerous nurses, they developed “Pediatric Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition”. It is a comprehensive delineation of the competent level of practice and professional performance common to and expected from pediatric registered nurses in all practice levels and settings. The publication’s scope of practice addresses what is expected of all pediatric nurses, specifying the who, what, where, when, why and how of their practice. That detailed discussion of the scope of practice gives the context—the underlying assumptions, characteristics, environments and settings, education and training requirements, key issues and trends and ethical and conceptual bases of pediatric nursing—needed to understand and use the standards. A foundational volume that is primarily for those directly involved with pediatric nursing practice, education and research, other nurses and allied healthcare providers, researchers and scholars will find value in this content. It is also a resource for employers, insurers, lawyers, policy makers, regulators and stakeholders involved in pediatric care.
