2023 Virtual Nursology Theory Week – March 16-20!

Save the dates!! The 2023 event planning is underway! The program will follow the same model that we used in 2022 – and the call for abstracts will be coming along early in September! Your abstracts will become the 30-minute knowledge sessions throughout the conference.

The focus of the conference will be organized around the prolific theoretical ideas that emerged from the Los Angeles, California region in the early days of nursing theory development! Diane Breckenridge, PhD, MSN, RN, ANEF of Charles Drew University in Los Angeles is the conference organizer; she is pulling together representatives from several Los Angeles area Colleges and Universities with stellar histories related to the development of nursing knowledge, including UCLA, UC Irvine, and Azusa Pacific!
