Becoming a Nurse: Author Reading and Panel Discussion
Thursday, April 18, 2013 | Suzzallo Library Smith Room
6-6:30pm: Light Refreshments; 6:30-8:00pm: Program following by Book Signing

The Health Sciences Library is co-sponsoring a program in support of a new anthology of essays I Wasn’t Strong Like This When I Started Out: True Stories of Becoming a Nurse edited by Lee Gutkind published in March 2013. Josephine Ensign, DrPH, Associate Professor, Department of Psychosocial and Community Health, whose essay Next of Kin appears in the anthology, is arranging a panel discussion including an interview with Theresa Brown who writes for the NYT Well Blog. This collection of true narratives captures the dynamism and diversity of nurses, who provide the vital first line of patient care. Nurses remember their firsts... first births and first deaths... and reflect on what gets them through long demanding shifts, and what keeps them in the profession, with insightful and moving perspectives from nurses at many different stages in their careers. Join us for refreshments at 6pm, followed by the program, including opening remarks from Director Tania Bardyn at 6:30pm.
