Deputy editor Alison Whyte will move to the newly created post of associate editor, looking after campaigns for the title.
Terry Hainsworth has been made acting clinical editor, covering Emma White's maternity leave.
Meanwhile, editor Rachel Downey is now interviewing for what will be a modified deputy editor role.
Nursing Times, which is published by Emap Healthcare, relaunched last year following a high-profile ad campaign and set about expanding its clinical coverage.
Downey increased staffing, brought in Hainsworth as primary care editor and boosted the clinical team.
