Anyone who submits a manuscript for peer review is at high risk for experiencing rejection. Dealing with rejection is not easy. Sometimes major revisions, based on the reviewers' comments, can help salvage the manuscript. The only way to avoid rejection is to avoid submitting one's work. Even when rejections are received, one has the satisfaction of at least knowing that an effort was made; remember, some people never get that far. Persistence in trying can eventually help one to become a better writer and, thus, a contributor to the literature of nursing.
