Brains, Guts and Gumption: Historical Perspectives on Nursing Education, Practice and Entrepreneurship

Exploring connections between health, nursing and leadership, the International Nursing History Conference welcomes papers that analyze the various ways in which nurses have negotiated their roles as educators, practitioners or entrepreneurs, testing new paths of work and practice as the context of health care changed and demanded new responses. Questions of education, practice, health policy and power will be examined, looking at critical areas of nursing’s past. How did nurses negotiate new domains of work, authority and knowledge?
