Aims and Scope


As the official journal of the Adult and Geropsychiatric-Mental Health Nurses (AGPN), a division of the International Society for Psychiatric Nurses (ISPN), Perspectives in Psychiatric Care (PPC) is recognized and respected as THE journal for advanced practice psychiatric nurses. The journal provides advanced practice nurses with current research, clinical application, and knowledge about psychiatric nursing, prescriptive treatment, and education. It publishes peer-reviewed papers that reflect clinical practice issues, psychobiological information, and integrative perspectives that are evidence-based.  Perspectives in Psychiatric Care includes regular columns on the biology of mental illness and pharmacology, the art of prescribing, integrative perspectives, and private practice issues.   

Devoted readers pore through this journal for:

  • Meaningful dialogue about clinical practice, conceptual thinking, and research in psychiatric nursing

  • Current information regarding prescribing – the neurobiology and the art of making valid decisions about drug therapy

  • Discussions on private practice issues and shared experiences

  • How complimentary alternative care can be integrated with traditional Western medicine as a valid approach to patient care

The journal recognizes the importance of ‘the decade of the brain’ and the need to synthesize this changing paradigm of mental health with the historical ‘relational’ approach to patient care. The editorial team carefully tracks the trends in mental health that affect nursing practice, to help readers stay current, relevant, and effective in advanced practice nursing. The scope of the journal is to support the practice of advance psychiatric nursing by offering the latest in research, education, and application to clinical practice. You’ll want to read PPC for the unique perspectives related to outpatient care in psychiatric nursing, as this content is hard to find in other nursing journals. Topics are clinically oriented, and cover “hot” areas such as prevention and aftermath of violence in adult populations.
