2015 UBC Centennial Nursing History Symposium

Almost a 100: University Nursing Education for the Future

Date: 19 Nov 2015

Room: T182 • UBC Hospital 2211 Wesbrook Mall

Location: UBC School of Nursing Room T182, 3rd floor of the UBC Hospital, 2211 Wesbrook Mall

Keynote speaker: Dr. Kathryn McPherson, Associate Professor in Gender, Feminist and Women’s History at York University and author of the seminal text Bedside Matters: The Transformation of Canadian Nursing, 1900-1990.

In her lecture “Learning Across Borders: Nursing Education, Practice, and Transnational Migration in the Long-20th Century,” McPherson speaks to the way recent international scholarship in nursing history has helped us think more critically about the divisions within nursing education – how questions of nursing education have been caught up in larger political and cultural debates about skill, gender, nationalism, and religion.

Panel Discussion: UBC Scholars Dr. Veronica Strong-Boag, Dr. Sally Thorne, and Assistant Professor Emerita Ethel Warbinek will give a response as a lead-in to discussion with the audience about the future, promise, and persistent challenges of nursing education and academic nursing programs.

After lunch the program will continue with a presentation of e-posters from students and scholars.

This event is hosted by the UBC School of Nursing's Consortium for Nursing History Inquiry.
