Historian Discusses Changes, Trends in Nursing

OGDEN, Utah – Deborah Judd, Weber State University associate professor of nursing and primary author of “A History of American Nursing: Trends and Eras,” will share her research March 17 at 7 p.m. in the Lindquist Alumni Center.

Judd will speak about the historical roots of the nursing profession and how the term “nurse” has evolved over the centuries. The discussion will review trends and advances in the profession in Utah and around the country. The discussion will place particular emphasis on the history of nursing at Weber State, as the School of Nursing celebrates its 60th year of professional excellence.
