    I have just finished my paper on Factors influencing the triage nurse when triaging myocardial infarction. It has been accepted this week and being prepared for publication in Australian Critical Care.

    I am enrolled in the Master of Nursing- thesis strand, currently in the first year.

    Am i eligible to apply for this award?

      Hi Kimberley,

      Thanks for your question and congratulations on having your paper accepted – what a great achievement! The conditions of this competition specify that your article must be submitted to a Sage peer-reviewed journal. Australian Critical Care is published by Elsevier. Unfortunately, this means that you will not be able to submit your paper on factors influencing the triage nurse when triaging the myocardial infarction for this award. If you have other papers, you may like to consider submitting them to a peer-reviewed Sage journal so that you can be eligible for this award. The competition terms and conditions give more detail about eligibility for this award.

      If you’d like more details about knowing where to publish, try contacting your Liaison Librarian or sending an email to
