Acclaimed nursing theorist, Imogene King, to speak at FSC’s 2nd Annual Nursing Tea
LAKELAND, Fla. (March 23, 2006) — Florida Southern College’s Department of Nursing welcomes Imogene King, EdN, MSN, RN, FAAN to speak at the 2nd Annual Nursing Tea on April 5 at 2:15 p.m. in the Lyon’s Athletic Conference Room on campus. King will discuss “Evidence Based Practice and the Theory of Goal Attainment,” the landmark work for which she is internationally known. The event is free and open to area nurses, who must reserve a seat by contacting Jeana Allen at (863) 680-3951 or email@example.com.
Universally recognized as a pioneer of nursing theory development and theory-based nursing practice, King has made an enduring impact on nursing education, practice and research while serving as an active leader in professional nursing. She has worked with nurses in Africa, Canada, Germany, Japan, Sweden, Denmark, and most recently, China, to shape professional nursing practice, scholarship and education. Her nursing paradigm, which seeks to integrate the personal, interpersonal and social systems that influence a patient’s health, is an important model for health care in the 21st century and beyond.
King began her academic career at St. Louis University, spent several years at Loyola University in Chicago, and then went to the University of South Florida, where she is now professor emeritus. She has served in elected and appointed positions as a voice for the profession and in 2004 was inducted into the American Nurses Association Hall of Fame.
