Five years ago, in this same journal, we presented the newly formed Science Committee1 of the Council of Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions (CCNAP). The aim of the CCNAP Science Committee is to support and contribute to the aim of CCNAP (optimisation of cardiovascular patient care) by taking responsibility for activities related to the research and the scientific foundation for cardiovascular nursing and allied professional practice within the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). Now, we would like to conclude the first 6 years of activity and reflect on how we met our highly ambitious goals. Was it possible for the CCNAP Science Committee to foresee the needs of additional research activities within the CCNAP and, with hindsight, how did we do? However, we also want to present how we plan to move forward and encourage even more CCNAP members to take part in our activities.
