Cheryl van Daalen-Smith teaches community nursing, women’s health and child-centred nursing for the school of nursing. She is the co-founder of York’s Sexualities Studies program and is cross appointed to York’s School of Women's Studies .

A well-known feminist nurse whose practice is rooted in social justice, her agenda is always emancipatory. For example, her work regarding children’s rights in health care settings is cutting edge. Her research exploring girls’ anger broke down barriers between service providers and the girls and young women they serve. One of her professional goals is to transform how children and youth are viewed and believes that they should be viewed as citizens worthy of both voice and choice.

She is a respected community health and pediatric mental health nurse. As founder the Ontario and Canadian Pediatric Nursing Associations, van Daalen-Smith’s dedication to collaborative leadership is evident. Her goal was to root pediatric nursing practice in the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of the child so as to ensure children’s voices were listened to, valued and acted upon. A belief that children have rights has always been central in her many consultancies, invited leadership roles and nursing practice.

van Daalen-Smith speaks of bearing witness to children and youth during her years as a public health nurse and has taken those “privileged experiences” into her classrooms, feminist research with children and youth and her appointment as a special advisor on the Canadian coalition for the rights of children. Her master’s work explored women’s self esteem, feminist research, feminist pedagogy and girls experiences with physical education. Her doctoral work explored the lived experience of anger in the lives of diverse girls and young women- the first and only study of its kind in Canadian nursing.

Her areas of interest and scholarship include women’s self esteem, young women and anger, girl’s experiences with shame in physical education, children’s rights in health care, electroshock, the rights of psychiatric survivors, human-animal bonding and the healing of spirit injuries, understanding homelessness from a critical social theory perspective, feminist nursing practice, feminist pedagogy, eco-therapy, and the relationship between oppression and mental health.

She has volunteered as a street nurse in Toronto, is currently working on rural out of the cold programming, has a private pro bono community health nurse practice for isolated seniors, continues to practice as a visiting nurse and as a professor, joins students in their journey to become socially active Registered Nurses at York University in Toronto, Canada.
