About Us

is a website community for nurse practitioners and physician assistants that publishes clinical articles by NPs and PAs as well as articles of general interest to healthcare professionals. Our site also features blogs and columns written by NPs, PAs and students training for these professions. This site attracts more than 1 million visitors per year.

Merion Matters launched ADVANCE for NPs & PAs in September 2010 to meet the clinical and practice information needs of nurse practitioners and physician assistants as they take on the challenges of healthcare reform. ADVANCE for NPs & PAs carries forward a tradition of advocacy, education and community established by its award-winning predecessors in print, ADVANCE for Nurse Practitioners and ADVANCE for Physician Assistants, which were published from April 1993 to August 2010.

For information on article submissions, see the Writer's Guidelines document posted under the Resources tab and the Peer Review tab.

In addition to this website, Merion Matters publishes a print magazine for nurse practitioners and doctors of nursing practice. Nurse Practitioner Perspective published its first issue in March/April 2014.

Subscriptions to Nurse Practitioner Perspective are free to U.S. NPs and DNPs and to NP and DNP students in their final year. Sign up for a print or digital subscription using the Subscribe tools on the homepage. Or, call 800-355-1088.
