Med-Surg Matters

MED-SURG Magazine Shines a Light on the Lives of Med-surg Nurses Across the Globe

Medsurg Magazine Piled on DeskThe official member magazine of AMSN, the publication features human interest stories and is distributed six times a year as a benefit of membership. 

What We Publish

We are always accepting submissions for the publication. Med-Surg Magazine is not a clinical digest/publication, but rather a lifestyle magazine with editorial, interviews, first-person stories, events, reflections from a med-surg nursing perspective, and topics that bring joy and enrichment to our nurses their leisure time.

Human interest stories, trends that make nurses' lives easier, profiles on nurses making a difference, stories of inspiration, memoirs from a first-person perspective, articles on emerging leaders, and spotlights on innovators in med-surg nursing are part of the general theme of the publication.

How to Get Published

We'd love to hear from you and encourage nurses to send us their content and ideas for the magazine. When submitting a story idea for the magazine to cover, keep the pitch brief and to the point. You should be able to sum up the subject of your story idea in a paragraph or two. Your query email should not be longer than two paragraphs in total.

If you have something already written for us to consider publishing, please contact us.
