Asian/Pacific Island Nursing Journal (School of Nursing)

As of spring 2018, this journal is published through the University of Hawai'i Press. Please visit the Press website for more information.

Nursing in Asia and the Pacific Islands regions is a rapidly growing group of professionals and include the fastest growing minority group in America. Yet one of the greatest challenges is finding information about these groups in publications which examine their health, disparities, immigration and acculturation challenges, health literacy, health education needs, policy implications, and responses to varied interventions in acute care and community settings. Asian / Pacific Island Nursing Journal assists researchers, educators, and practitioners in meeting these important challenges.

Asian/Pacific Island Nursing Journal features research papers, empirical and theoretical articles, editorials, abstracts of recent dissertations, and conference summaries that relate to nursing care written by scientists and researchers in nursing and the basic and social sciences, such as:

  • Clinical and Developmental Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Social Work, Public Health, Education, Genetics, Pharmacology, Infectious Disease, Oncology, Cardiovascular Disease, Pulmonary Function and Disease, Dermatology, Wound Healing, Immunology, Anesthesiology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Hematology, Neonatology, Nephrology, Pathology, Physiology, Nutrition, Pain Management, Sleep Disturbances, and Mental Health.
See Aims and Scope page for complete coverage of this publication.



We are happy to announce that Asian/Pacific Island Nursing Journal has been accepted for inclusion in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). PubMed and Scopus applications will be submitted soon. We are looking forward to your submissions. DOAJ inclusion is an important recognition of our quality.
