Nursing in Practice, launched in 2001 to reflect ‘the profession’s changing role’ within primary care, reaches a landmark this month with the publication of its 100th issue.

Marilyn Eveleigh, who launched the very first edition as editor, and remains a member of the magazine’s advisory board to this day, reflects on her previous 99 editorial comments, while we celebrate by charting how nursing has changed since the magazine was launched using some of the previous front covers.

Away from the 100th issue celebrations, Kathy Oxtoby looks at how the new NICE guidelines on asthma, and the change to objective testing for diagnosis, will impact practice nurses in terms of their future training.

You may also notice a fresh look to the magazine. In the 17 years the magazine has been published, there have only been two big changes in the look of the print product. The 100th issue marks the third, with some changes designed to bring about more symmetry with our website.
