    Hi, I am also having trouble searching for the place we should submit the article to. By choosing a section, do you mean for example "General Nursing discussion" "World Nursing" ...etc ?

    Choose the forum, like General Nursing, where you want the article posted.

    You then post it like you are starting a new thread/topic, except where it asks if you want to submit an article, select YES, I'M SUBMITTING AN ARTICLE in the dropdown menu

    You will need to include a 50-85 word summary about your article in the SUMMARY BOX

    Then enter your article in the CONTENT BOX, remembering these things:
    - Article must be at least 600 words
    - Article must be nursing related
    - Article must be your original piece of work and unique to this site (not published elsewhere)
    - Article must comply with the Terms of Service

    Once you click the SUBMIT button, your article will have to be approved and edited if necessary. Depending on the number of articles submitted ahead of you, your article may not be published for a few days.

    Let me know if you have additional questions.
