As 2018 comes to a close, so does our tenure as the Co-Editors of JNPD.  We're proud to have been at the helm for the past five years as we've seen the Journal and the NPD specialty grow and thrive in many ways.  It's been a privilege to serve as stewards of the Journal, which will be celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2019!  We want to thank the JNPD Editorial Board, reviewers, publishing team, authors, and most importantly, readers for making JNPD a high-quality, relevant, and useful source of information.  We are grateful for your contributions and support.

As we put the final touches on our last issues, we would like to also extend a warm welcome to the new JNPD Editor Kathleen Burke, Ph.D., RN-BC, CENP, FAAN. Dr. Burke is the Corporate Director, Nursing Professional Development and Innovation and Co-Director of Continuing Interprofessional Education for the University of Pennsylvania Health System, and Advanced Senior Lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. She will start in the editor role on January 1, 2019.

Thank you once again, and continued good wishes with the important work you're doing.  We wish you a safe and joyful holiday with your families, friends, and communities.
