The American Journal of Nursing (AJN) recognized the best nursing and healthcare publications of 2010 with an announcement of its Book of the Year Award recipients. Winners in 15 separate categories appear in the current issue of the journal. AJN, the leading voice of nursing since 1900, is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, part of Wolters Kluwer Health.

“AJN’s Book of the Year awards are sought-after by authors and publishers,” said Shawn Kennedy, MA, RN, AJN’s editor-in-chief. “As part of our mission to disseminate credible, cutting-edge information, the awards give us the opportunity to acknowledge high quality publications.”
