1989 – 2016: Philosophy in the Nurse’s World

Contributor: Derek Sellman
January 29, 2019

 

Since 1989, the “Philosophy in the Nurse’s World” conferences were held almost every other year.  The first 8 conferences were by invitation only which explains why there are so many invited speakers listed in the first 8 conferences. Since then, the conference has moved to a more conventional conference style. The 2019 conference is planned for August 18-19, 2019, and will remain on Nursology.net as a ‘future” and then “past” event after August!

Here are the dates, themes, locations, and invited speakers for each of the conferences prior to 2018:
