Call for Contributors—TrendLines

By Jillian A. Russell, MSN, RN, NPD-BC

Each month, TrendLines offers a number of articles aligned with our nursing professional development (NPD) practice model—categorized by inputs, throughputs, and outputs. TrendLines provides an excellent opportunity for you—our members—to share and disseminate your work.

If you attended our 2021 Annual Convention, Aspire to Inclusivity, chances are you are feeling inspired and empowered to make a change in practice. We invite you to write an article for TrendLines to share your story—what did you learn, what changes were made to improve practice?

We also invite you to consider the following topics for submission.

  • Innovative Inputs
    • NPD Rock Stars: Features individuals, teams, or affiliates as NPD Rock Stars who exemplify NPD roles
    • Environmental Scanning: Highlights a variety of issues with implications for NPD practice, including book reviews
  • Throughputs in Action
    • Exemplars of implementation of NPD responsibilities and standards of practice; how do you exemplify competency management, education, role development, collaborative partnerships, research/evidence-based practice/quality improvement, and/or onboarding/orientation?

Visit the TrendLines library for examples of past articles and click here to learn more about article submission guidelines. Feel free to reach out to Jillian Russell at with questions and ideas for submissions.
