Full course description

Course Description:

The David Jowers Endowed Lectureship was established to attract educators, medical practitioners and others to address topics related to nursing care related to 1) patient safety and the rendering of high quality nursing care and/or 2) HIV infection, AIDS, and other infectious diseases, the treatment of patients and the care of families faced with these illnesses, and the training of students and research in these areas. The lecture will share with students, faculty, health care providers and members of the community important information about these subjects.

How has nursing’s past led to the profession as we know it today? In her 2019 Jowers Lecture, "Harmony and Discordance: Blazing a Path Forward for Nursing Education and Practice," Dr. Swan asks students if they have the gumption and grit to learn from history & blaze a path forward.
