Good Nurse, Bad Nurse

Just to let you all know that I'll be giving a public talk at Edinburgh University on October 2nd. It's an occasion to mark the residency and to talk about the different and often distorted ways that nursing is reflected in our culture.

Here's the blurb:

‘Good Nurse, Bad Nurse’

Featuring a cast of drunkards ,saints, harridans, angels, sexpots, wimps  and mavericks, Nicola White, Leverhulme Writer in Residence at Nursing Studies Edinburgh, explores how nursing  has been portrayed in literature, film and popular culture and asks what part nurses play in their own stereotyping.

Hope that you get the chance to come along - it's free but ticketed and you can book HERE

Public talk, October 2nd.  Doors open 6.30pm, talk starts 7.00pm, Teviot Lecture Theatre, Doorway 5, Medical School, Teviot Place, Edinburgh, EH8 9AG
