Introduced at a time when learning health systems are unfolding across Canada, Bloomberg’s Doctor of Nursing program has commenced at a perfect time. During this program, I have gained a greater understanding of interplay between health system structures and how nurses are ideal leaders and change agents to advance research and education within these settings. Most importantly, I have felt supported and encouraged by my supervisor, committee, professors, and classmates to continue to generate inquiry across academic and health organizations, situating myself as a lifelong leaner.
