Keep it clear to engage your readers

Your article has a single purpose: to communicate. Effective written communication takes practice. You may need to write several drafts before you feel your work is ready to submit, and even then the journal editor may require further changes. Your overarching aim is to be clear, and every paragraph, every sentence, every word must contribute to this goal. Any section that lacks clarity has to be redrafted.

Nursing Management. 25, 1, 25-25. doi: 10.7748/nm.25.1.25.s24
