MinorityNurse is always looking for new guest authors, and we welcome individual writers to contribute high-quality guest posts to MinorityNurse.com.
Minority Nurse aims to provide nurses of color with a targeted career road map by offering practical articles on job opportunities, employment trends, and continuing education. Readers represent a wide range of educational backgrounds, from an associate degree to Ph.D. holders, from students to practicing nurses and nursing faculty. Minority health disparities and culturally competent health care are frequent concerns, as are specific efforts to increase the number of African American, Asian, Hispanic, Filipino, and Native American/Alaska Native nurses in the profession.

MinorityNurse Style Guidelines
When preparing and submitting an article for publication, please keep the following in mind:
- Our editorial is written in an informal but informative manner. Please use a newspaper-style headline for the working title and, if possible, include an active-voice verb (gerunds are also acceptable). We prefer not to use footnotes or endnotes, as this gives the appearance of a scientific journal.
- We follow the Chicago Manual of Style in all matters related to punctuation and grammar.
- Please include the location (city and state) of companies, organizations, or schools cited in the text.
- Please include the professional and educational credentials of any nurses cited in the text (on first usage only): e.g., Jane Hernandez, RN, BSN, MPH.
- Our preferred length for print articles is 1,800 to 2,400 words for features and 800 to 1,000 words for columns, such as Academic Forum, Degrees of Success, and Second Opinion. For MinorityNurse.com articles, the suggested length for blog posts is 400 to 800 words.
- Your post should be original and distinct from articles on MinorityNurse.com.
- Use short paragraphs, no more than 3-4 sentences per paragraph, and provide a clear takeaway or learning for readers. Use headings, subheadings, and numbered lists/bullets to structure your writing.
- Include facts, research, sources, or personal anecdotes to substantiate your insights, information, and arguments with external links (no less than 3).
- Please submit your article via e-mail to [email protected] as an attachment. We use Microsoft Word, though we can also accept Google documents.
- We encourage authors to include images/videos in the submission. However, authors are responsible for obtaining permission to use images/videos and/or other material from outside sources. If you include images or videos within the article, they must be high quality and have source citations, only use images/videos for which you have permission or which are in the public domain (and be sure to credit your source). Please ask any nurses you interview to send photos of themselves via e-mail to [email protected] We are especially partial to “action shots,” such as nurses working with patients, minority students participating in recruitment or retention activities, pictures taken at community health events, etc. If you can, we also appreciate the inclusion of a larger, 1200×680 pixel image for the headline photo. Electronic or scanned photos must be at least 3″ x 5″ in size with a resolution of at least 300 dpi.
- Authors must provide a photo and a short (up to 60 words) biography and may include 1 link to your website’s homepage with a brand name anchor text for the About the Author section.
- Please do not include product promotions in the title of articles and do not use more than 2 links to products (not applicable to product reviews)
We reserve the right to edit the content you submit, but this will primarily be done to correct errors or make the content more readable.
- By submitting an article, you agree to com using it on our website (with any amends we deem suitable), and you will not claim for payment or copyright infringement now or in the future.
- When the article is published on our website, it is then owned by us, and you are not permitted to re-publish the article without our prior written approval.
