Professional Nursing Today (PNT) is the official journal for a number of influential nursing organisations:
the Forum for Professional Nurse Leaders (FPNL), the Neonatal Nurses Association of Southern Africa (NNASA), the South African Gastrointestinal Nurses Society (SAGINS), the Society for Private Nursing Practitioners (SPNP), the Nursing Education Association (NEA) and the South African Urology Nursing Association (SAUNA). PNT is also distributed to clinic nurses at all DisChem, Clicks, and Netcare Stork Nests.
