Australian Electronic Journal of Nursing Education   http://www.scu.edu.au/schools/nhcp/aejne/index.html  Site Reviews(0)
The AEJNE is committed to enhancing the teaching learning experience across a variety of nurse contexts. The journal will be a means by which nurses can share findings, insights, experience and advice to colleagues involved in all aspects of the educational process. The AEJNE seeks to use the advantages of electronic communication to provide rapid and accessible information about teaching and learning to nurses world wide. The AEJNE has a special commitment to nursing education in Australia. To this end it will allow country specific comment in this context. The universality of teaching / learning will, however, provide wide opportunity for nurses outside of Australia to publish studies and papers in the journal. The AEJNE will endeavour to provide rapid publication times. To this extent the editors will set themselves maximum turnaround times which will be reviewed and reduced on an annual basis. The AEJNE recognises the importance of the learners perspective. It will set aside part of each edition to contributions by undergraduate and postgraduate students of nursing. The AEJNE is committed to both scholarly excellence and information sharing. The journal will attempt to marry these areas by providing a forum for both refereed and non-refereed papers. The status of any contribution will be clearly indicated to the reader.

American Indian Higher Education Consortium   http://www.aihec.org/  Site Reviews(0)
The American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) is a unique—and uniquely American Indian—organization. It was founded in 1972 by the presidents of the nation’s first six Tribal Colleges, as an informal collaboration among member colleges. Today, AIHEC has grown to represent 34 colleges in the United States and one Canadian institution. Unlike most professional associations, it is governed jointly by each member institution. AIHEC’s mission is to support the work of these colleges and the national movement for tribal self-determination. Its mission statement, adopted in 1973, identifies four objectives: maintain commonly held standards of quality in American Indian education; support the development of new tribally controlled colleges; promote and assist in the development of legislation to support American Indian higher education; and encourage greater participation by American Indians in the development of higher education policy.
