Sioban Nelson PhD
Dean and Professor – Lawrence S Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing
After starting the MN at the University of Toronto, I have had a few readings from Sioban about understanding the history of Nursing. These articles really helped my understanding of nursing. Being young in the profession this historical analysis helps to ground and better understand nursing. During this episode we talked about Dr Nelson’s background and how she integrated her understanding of historical analysis into her academic work.
