The Journal of Nursing Education began as a quarterly journal published by McGraw-Hill. The first editor-in-chief was Alice Bicknell, although she was supplanted by a small editorial board in the journal's second year. This editorial board continued their oversight until 1981, at which time SLACK Incorporated became the journal's publisher and assigned Margaret Carnine as its editor. As of September 2018[update], the editor-in-chief is Amy J. Barton, PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF.
In 2002, the journal increased from nine issues per year to 12.
