Patricia d'Antonio, Ph.D., RN (Senior Fellow, Center for the Study of the History of Nursing and Editor, Nursing History Review) will present a paper, "Who is a Nurse? Redux," at a brown-bag seminar of the Francis C. Wood Institute for the History of Medicine.
Pat's paper historicizes the issue of minimal educational requirements for professional nursing. It first compares and contrasts the use of the "professionalization" paradigm by medicine and nursing, and then articulates nursing's very different locus in family caregiving and gendered educational aspirations. The paper suggests nursing might be the only form of sectarian medical practice that survived the "scientific medicine" jugernaught!
The seminar will be held at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia (19 South 22nd Street, Philadelphia 19103) at noon on Tuesday, November 19, 2002.
. . . and don't forget to bring along a lunch!
