Specializes in Health insurance nursing/ Cardiac nursing.

Does anybody know of any nursing/ medical magazines/websites/blogs I can potentially write for, or any other writing opportunities for nurses? ( I love writing and think it would be awesome to use my writing skills and nursing knowledge together)

You can write for us here at AN! It's a good way to break into writing, especially if you're doing it for nurses. Check with the Admins for the guidelines. They have to approve every submission, so when your article is published all of us will know your material has been vetted. That's important. Best of luck to you...I look forward to reading your thoughts.

Can anyone submit an article at any time or only during contests?  Where do we find the guidelines?   Thanks for your tips!
