As part of her year as Leverhulme Writer in Residence at Nursing Studies, Nicola White will be giving a free public lecture entitled ‘Good Nurse, Bad Nurse.’
Featuring a cast of drunkards, saints, harridans, angels, sexpots, wimps and mavericks, the lecture will explore how the nurse has been portrayed in literature, film and popular culture from Dickens to Nurse Jackie. Why is it that no other profession has images of such variety and potency and what part do nurses play in their own stereotyping?
October 2nd at 7.00pm, Teviot Lecture Theatre, Doorway 5, Medical School, Teviot Place, Edinburgh, EH8 9AG.
Nicola blogs about her residency here.
