Beth Perry is the featured speaker at the Bernice King Lectureship in Clinical Nursing Education.

The importance of exemplary role models in health care settings, especially for students and novice staff, will be the topic of the second annual Bernice King Lectureship in Clinical Nursing Education, taking place on Nov. 8.

Beth Perry, author of the book Moments In Time: Images of Exemplary Nursing Care, is the featured speaker at the event being held in the lecture theatre on the fourth floor at the Juravinski Cancer Centre.

Her talk, entitled Sharing The Journey: Being an Exemplary Role Model, will be followed by a panel discussion, question and answer period and a reception.
Perry is an RN who obtained her B.Sc. in nursing in 1982, and her PhD in 1994 from the University of Alberta.

The event will run from 1:30 to 3:15 p.m. Health care providers of any type and students are invited to attend, but registration is limited to 130 people. There is no registration fee.
The lectureship is sponsored by the McMaster University School of Nursing, in collaboration with Mohawk and Conestoga colleges, as well as Hamilton Health Sciences.

The lectureship was launched in 2005, and named for King, a former assistant clinical professor in McMaster’s School of Nursing, in recognition of her outstanding contributions to clinical education of nursing students as well as many other health discipline students.
