Los Angeles, CA - SAGE recently announced the appointment of Sally Solomon Cohen, PhD, RN, FAAN, as Editor-in-Chief of Policy, Politics & Nursing Practice (PPNP), a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal focusing on nursing and health policy. Cohen succeeds David M. Keepnews, PhD, JD, RN, FAAN, who served as Editor-in-Chief since 2004. Keepnews will serve as Consulting Editor to PPNP during a transition period.
Cohen has been PPNP Deputy Editor since 2012. She holds the Virginia P. Crenshaw Endowed Chair at the College of Nursing at the University of New Mexico, where she is also Director of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Nursing and Health Policy Collaborative. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing (AAN) and was recently selected by the American Nurses Association and the American Nurses Foundation as Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence at the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies beginning September 1, 2014.
Cohen received her Master of Science in Nursing from Yale University and a PhD from Columbia University. In addition to her current position at the University of New Mexico, she held faculty positions at Yale and Columbia. She is widely recognized for her expertise on child health policy and is author of the book Championing Child Care, in which she analyzed three decades of national childcare policies and politics.
“I cannot think of anyone more qualified than Sally to lead PPNP into the future,” said Keepnews. “Sally brings unparalleled expertise in health policy and nursing, and a tested commitment to moving the journal forward. I look forward to continuing to work closely with her as she steps into her new role as PPNP Editor-in-Chief.”
Cohen added, “Under David’s leadership, PPNP has solidified its reputation as a source of high-quality, influential contributions on health policy and nursing. I am excited by this opportunity to further raise the journal’s visibility and impact on nursing and health policy.”
“SAGE welcomes Sally to her new role,” said Bob Vrooman, Director of STM Journals. “We are proud to continue our strong support of PPNP and look forward to working with Sally to move the journal into the next stage of its development.
