The official journal of the International Philosophy of Nursing Society, Nursing Philosophy is an international peer-edited journal dedicated to articulating a more theoretical basis for the practice of nursing and healthcare professions. It also provides a forum for discussion of issues at the foundations of nursing theory and practice.

Pamela Grace is an associate professor of adult health and ethics at the Connell School of Nursing and holds a doctorate in philosophy with a concentration in medical ethics. Grace is an experienced nurse practitioner whose interests include all areas of nursing and healthcare ethics, especially issues of professional obligation towards both individuals and society, as well as ethical decision making.

An assistant professor of psychological and mental health, Danny Willis’s area of interest is men’s mental health and health promotion. Willis has used qualitative research methods to study men’s mental health issues related to trauma and abuse experiences, such as adult hate crimes and boys' experiences of being bullied. Willis is committed to continuing scholarship towards philosophical, theoretical, and nursing intervention developments related to mental health, health promotion, and healing processes in the aftermath of traumatic and marginalizing experiences.
