Film Screening: Handmaidens and Battleaxes: The Real Story of Nursing

Hunton Student Center

"Handmaidens and Battleaxes" probes why nursing evolved primarily as a women`s profession. Importantly, it examines the psychological and sociological influences that have held the profession in check and fed the age old disregard for the work of the nurse. The film gives a global picture of nursing, using Australia as a case study but with comparative input from American and British counterparts. It highlights the complex social, political and professional dilemmas faced by nurses today. "Handmaidens and Battleaxes" uses rare archival footage, dramatic re-enactments, personal interviews and photographic stills collected from nursing colleges from three continents. Participants are welcome to bring their lunch. Registration is encouraged. Walk-ins are welcome.

Feierstein Lecture 'Innovation: Galvanizing the Advancement of Nursing Image and Practice'

School of Nursing - room 1011

Description: Nursing is a practice discipline, closest to the patient, family, and community. Nurse caregivers, educators, and scientists have a lens on best and problematic clinical practices that make them ideal innovators. Yet traditional roles and functions within the discipline have not led to breakthrough protocols, technologies, businesses, and inventions within their realm. This presentation will address the nature and scope of innovation, taking an idea and advancing it through research and practice channels through to implementation.
