The Mary Glover Lecture: A nursing odyssey
Anne Sutherland Boal, as the Mary Glover Lecturer, presented the following text in Vancouver, British Columbia, at the conference of the Canadian Association of Neuroscience Nurses in June 2002.
I am very pleased to be here today as you come together to begin the 33rd Annual General Meeting and Scientific Sessions of the Canadian Association of Neuroscience Nurses (CANN). During the eight years that I worked at British Columbia’s (BC) Children’s Hospital here in Vancouver, there were a number of nurses on our neurosciences unit who were actively involved in CANN. I came to appreciate, through their activities, the advantages that involvement brought to their career development, as well as the excellence that it brought to the care those nurses provided to the children and families. I am very pleased to note that in the sessions this year there are a number of familiar names to me.
