Author guidelines

We, at Knowledge is Power, Inc. and Nurse411.com are committed to bringing free or low cost continuing education offerings to nurses everywhere. But, unfortunately we have limited resources.


Although we accept articles for electronic publication, we are also looking for all types of information that nurses may find interesting. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Editorials on topics that impact nursing or health care such as legislation, funding, nursing shortage, etc.
  • Interesting case studies/scenarios that may include x-rays, photos or ECG tracings (rhythm strips or 12 leads)
  • Stories of triumph or perseverance that highlight nurses and their impact on the patient.
  • New medications, procedures, and techniques in use in your clinical practice.
  • Conferences that you are aware of that you would like to add to our calendar.
  • Any other content you think we should have on this site.


Files should be submitted in Microsoft Word 97 (or later version). Due to the potential for viruses and their cousins, we prefer to not receive zip files and word files should not have macros (if you don't know what they are you probably don't have them).


The length of your content should be dictated by the material. Be careful not to pick too broad of a topic to write on. For instance acute MI is too broad, new treatments for acute MI complications is better.

Stories of interest to nurses should optimally be no more than 2500 words. However, because of the editing process, feel free to exceed that length.

Conference and new therapy information should be limited to a paragraph or two. Material exceeding this length will be trimmed.


All material will be reviewed by nurses, doctors and/or ancillary health care professionals to insure accuracy, subject coverage and relevance. If the material is appropriate for our audience, it will be forwarded to the editorial board for editing both for length and clarity.

Any financial interest or professional/personal associations the author(s) have with any company in the article must be disclosed for ethical reasons.


Over the last couple of years, nationally recognized authors have been accused of plagiarism to the detriment of their reputations, the reputations of their publication and the trust of the people.

Therefore, we want to clearly state that plagiarism will not be tolerated. Sources will be researched and material may be submitted to professional search companies who will search for plagiarized material. It may take longer to come up with your own way of saying something, but it is worth it in the end.

We at nurse411.com pride ourselves on our ethics and we only want to use material that is in concert with this philosophy.


Knowledge is Power, Inc. and nurse411.com are the sole judges of the suitability of all material for the web site and/or any other publishing medium owned, operated or otherwise controlled by Knowledge is Power, Inc. All decisions are final.
