Bukola Salami, a Nigerian-born scholar, has achieved a remarkable feat in her academic career. She was recently appointed as a full professor at the University of Alberta in Canada, just eight years after completing her PhD degree. This achievement is not only a source of pride for her but also an inspiration to young people, particularly women in Africa and around the world who aspire to pursue academic careers.

Professor Salami’s journey to becoming a full professor is a testament to her unwavering commitment and dedication to her studies. She received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Windsor in Canada, where she is also a registered nurse. She then pursued her master’s degree in nursing administration at the University of Toronto, a top-ranked institution known for its excellence in research and teaching.

Following the successful completion of her master’s degree, Professor Salami continued her academic pursuit and embarked on a doctoral program in nursing at the University of Toronto in 2008. Her research focus was on the impact of caregiving on the health and well-being of family caregivers of persons with dementia. She conducted a rigorous study that explored the challenges and coping strategies of caregivers, and her findings have contributed significantly to the knowledge base on dementia care.
