The Consortium for Nursing History Inquiry welcomes all who are interested to join our virtual event

This event will include three presentations by participants from:

Join us to learn about a Rockefeller Foundation report written by Ethel Johns (the first director of nursing at UBC) on the status of Black women in the nursing profession in the United States (written in 1925), the entry of Black students to UBC Nursing and UNB School of Nursing, and racism in nursing education and practice in Canada today.
