Welcome to The Aboriginal and Torres Islander Nursing Journal (ATSINJ)
ATSINJ is a private Indigenous Nursing Organisation registered and operating in New South Wales under relevant State and Federal legislation. We are a peer reviewed electronic journal that will publish academic articles on issues relevant to the Nursing and Nursing care of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people on a quarterly basis. On the outside of ATSINJ are free to air nursing resources that are available on the Internet - these are categorized into relevant sections and provide a background to the Health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Our Aims are to:
- provide a culturally appropriate and safe environment for health professionals and academics to publish original research and scholarly papers, lectures, reports, videos and presentations about all areas related to Indigenous nursing;
- add to the existing body of knowledge on nursing from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspective;
- help promote awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander public health issues on a National scale;
- maintain the principles of reconciliation by promoting an environment of Social Justice for Indigenous Australian's;
