 2018 Nursing History Symposium

“In Search of Nursing’s History”

Explore new and existing resources in nursing history on UBC campus and beyond. New digital projects, archival, special, and photograph collections as well as artifacts relevant to nursing history will be displayed, presented, and discussed.

Held at the UBC Woodward library’s historic space, UBC librarians, archivists, the UBC Consortium for Nursing History Inquiry and the BC History of Nursing Society collaboratively invite you to join for interactive presentations, discussions, and a Walk About to examine what’s new and what’s old in search of the rich history of nursing and healthcare.
