Julie Fairman, PhD, RN, FAAN, will present the Harriet Fulmer Lecture on October 21, 2014


Tuesday, October 21, 2014 from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

University of Illinois at Chicago, College of Nursing - 3rd Floor Event Center

Dr. Fairman is the Nightingale Professor of Nursing and Director of the Barbara Bates Center for the Study of the History of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania.  Julie Fairman’s current work involves the history of the intersection of health policy and nurse practitioners in the United States from 1980 to the present. In 2009 she served as the IOM/AAN/ANF Scholar in Residence. In other words, she is an internationally known leader in the field of nursing history. We are delighted to welcome her to UIC.

Dr. Fairman’s talk will center on the history of regulation and scope of practice for Advanced Practice Registered Nurses with a focus on the Federal Trade Commission and advanced practice nurses.

Immediately following Dr. Fairman’s talk, there will be a short commemoration of the life of Dr. Martha Pitel.  Dr. Pitel, who died on April 19 2014, was a nurse researcher and educator. At a time when few nurses earned graduate degrees, Dr. Pitel was awarded a PhD in anatomy at the University of Minnesota and continued her research at the University of Paris. During her long career Dr. Pitel taught at several of the nation’s premier universities, including UIC, and chaired the Nursing Departments at the University of Kansas and at Chicago’s Northwestern University. We are proud to hold her papers at the MNHRC.  In her memory and through her support, the Center will open the The Martha Pitel Illinois Training School digital collection. The event will conclude with refreshments and optional tours of the Midwest Nursing History Research Center.
