N-NURSE plans sixth symposium April 18-19 in Flagstaff

Navajoland Nurses United for Research, Service and Education, Inc. (N-NURSE) will host its sixth symposium, "Hózhó Náhásdlii: Sacred Space and Human Caring in Health Care," April 18-19 at Little America Hotel in Flagstaff, Ariz. Organizers are seeking sponsors for the event.

N-NURSE invites speakers and workshop facilitators with expertise appropriate to the focus of the symposium. American Indian nursing students participate in the symposium through the group's American Indian Nursing Student Scholarship Program. The symposium provides an opportunity for nursing students to network, expand their knowledge of nursing as a career and build leadership skills.

Dr. Jean Watson is returning as this year's keynote speaker. She will discuss the cultural wisdom inherent in the concepts of her 'Caritas' theory and Hózhó náhásdlii, Navajo philosophy, to integrate human caring in health care environments.

Symposium information is available at www.n-nurse.org. More information is available from Linda Petri at (505) 459-2619 or lindap1@q.com.
