abstract

  • In this issue of the Canadian Journal of Nursing Leadership (CJNL), we are pleased to offer a range of articles and perspectives including a leadership profile, a letter to the editor, research-focused articles and invited commentaries. The unifying thread through all of them is the complex maze of challenges and opportunities facing the nursing workforce. This complexity is created by many factors in Canada and around the globe. To be sure, the COVID-19 pandemic is one of them but its effect has not been to create - but rather to accelerate and intensify the impacts of issues that have plagued nursing for decades. There are no easy solutions to what are longstanding challenges; however, that is not a justification for inaction. Improvements to the experiences of nurses in their workplaces is a responsibility we all need to own, beginning with how we treat one another.
