As 2021 draws to a close, on behalf of the IFNA boardm I wish to thank all IFNA members including the Committees, Chapters and Committee Chairs, and Kassalen Meetings and Events, for your belief in and continual and precious support of IFNA, and for generously giving your time, expertise and wisdom to drive the work of IFNA. Without such support we could not continue advocating so successfully for families and family nurses worldwide.
Dr Kit Chesla DNSc RN FAAN
The development of the International Family Nursing Association (IFNA) is a remarkable story of courage and commitment by a dedicated group of international nurses who were united by a goal to improve the health and wellbeing of families around the globe. My name is Dr. Kit Chesla and I am a Professor Emerita at University of California, San Francisco, Department of Family Health Care Nursing. I was a steering committee member who helped with the early formation of IFNA as a professional organisation (along with. Drs. Bell, Curry & Knafl).
