I am immensely proud of the leadership in family nursing practice scholarship that Canadians have historically provided to our international family nursing community by many, including the work led by faculty and graduate students of the Family Nursing Unit, University of Calgary and the Center of Excellence in Family Nursing, University of Montreal. I am enthusiastically cheering a new generation of Canadian family nursing scholars who are continuing to advance the science of family nursing through their research, education, and practice.
