Title: International Transfer of Nursing Knowledge: Professor Loretta Heidgerkens “Unit Learning” Model
Abstract: This case study examines the roots, expressions and significance of transfer of nursing knowledge between the USA and Denmark in the period 1945-1970. The study specifically focuses on Loretta Heidgerkens “Unit Learning” which originated in the Catholic University of America. Two main questions will be examined. How was the model described, put into practice and accepted in the USA? And, in which way did region, culture and professional and religious affiliation influence the transfer of nursing knowledge?
