This year, 2022, marks the 20th year of publication of Clinical Nursing Research (CNR). I could not be more excited to lead CNR into the next phase of growth. As the new Editor-In-Chief, I humbly follow in the footsteps of three trailblazing editors: Dr. Patricia Hayes and Dr. Marilynn Wood, who both founded the Journal in 1992, and Dr. Pamela Z. Cacchione, the outgoing Editor-In-Chief. Over the last few months as I have been transitioning into the role of CNR’s Editor-In-Chief, Pamela has been exceptionally generous with her time and attention. I am grateful for her insights and imparted wisdom, and her support in ensuring a smooth transition for the Journal.
