About the event

The theme for the 5th History Conference — “Challenging, Changing and Champions Past”, which follows immediately on from the success of the 4th History conference held in 2019. It will present research on historical and personal perspectives related to nursing and its broader contexts. It will explore the complexities and differences of the past that have shaped the nursing profession.

It will appeal to a broad audience including nurses and other health professionals, historians, ACN members and non-members, clinicians and academics.
