HOW TO REGISTER AS AN user
Anyone may access the Online Journal of Rural Nursing and Health Care to read the Journal. However, if you would like to be notified when a new issue is published or you may want to submit a manuscript to the Journal for review, you need to become a registered user.
To become a register user, please send your contact information (name and email are required, other information such as affiliation, rank, and credentials will be included if you send that information). You may also let us know if you only want to be listed as a reader or if you would like to have the role of author (this would allow you to submit manuscripts now or at a later time if you wish). Information for becoming a registered user should be sent to one of the editorial staff listed below:

You will receive an automatic notification when your user account has been established. This registration will result in the reader receiving the Table of Contents by email for each new issue of the Journal. This list also allows the Journal to claim a certain level of support of readership. See the Journal's Privacy Statement, which assures readers that their name and email address will not be used for other purposes.

rno statement on diversity
The RNO recognizes the diversity of rural nursing practice and is a voice for rural nurses to healthcare agencies, academia, and government. The recent deaths of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Rayshard Brooks are vivid reminders that racial disparities still exist.
As an organization we denounce racism and are committed to achieving health equity, reducing disparities, and respecting human dignity. To undo racism it requires each of us to examine our own biases and engage in difficult conversations. We ask you to consider the history of racism and injustice as we care for our colleagues and our patients, for whom these events have caused pain.
