We are delighted to share the news that our long-time member, Dr. Geertje Boschma, has attained full Professorship in the UBC School of Nursing.

Geertje was honoured by her colleagues in a Special Lecture Series in the Faculty of Applied Science on April 21, 2015. A Celebration of Promotion was held to recognize five exceptional people for their promotion to the position of Professor in their chosen field.

Each newly created Professor presented a Paper about themselves and their research.

Geertje’s excellent Paper was entitled: Nursing and Health: Why History Matters.
