    I guess it depends on your style. If you're saying you're only going to read some issues then I'd go for nursing standard as nursing times seems to have a lot of "partwork" type articles (ie the article carries on over two or more issues) whereas nursing standard tends to be more self contained. If you're going to read all the issues of one I'd maybe go for nursing times as I've found it a little easier to read (though that's just me) - I'd suggest you borrow a few issues of both and then decide...

    I'd get neither, the nursing standard is 'ok' in that it's good to keep up with the political style of nursing, however i'd reccomend the british journal of nursing, it's a good academic journal, easy to read articles for students and has applicability in practice, with more reliable research

    I'd just avoid the nursing times like the plague- one of my lecturers reckons it's goign to be pulled out this time next year! Nursing times is ok for applicants, but definately not for nursing students 2nd year and above

    when you come to do EBP or are doing the degree, you'll sort of learn about the hierarchy of journals etc, to use in assignments or reliabilty when reviewing literature etc

    Plus have you seen the beyond the bedpan section? absoloute joke, and their 'journal articles' are questionable. Same goes for the nursing standard too, recent article back in the autumn on the use of pro-biotic drinks, sponsered by...activia :rolleyes: most bias report ever!

    I think they both represent the appalling state of the profession. Nurse research has lost its way enough, without having to put up with the **** that passes for a nurse journal.
    plenty of good research in good journals ... NT and NS are not good journals , nuff said ...
