Co-Sponsored by the University College Dublin

O'Callaghan Alexander Hotel

Welcome to the 32nd Annual AAHN Nursing & Health Care History Conference, co-sponsored by the University College Dublin. This year we are working on an exciting program, offering you a wealth of opportunities for professional development and personal enjoyment. Join us in Dublin, Ireland for inspiring speakers, informative workshops and opportunities for networking and dialogue.  Take time to connect with old friends and make new ones during the social activities. And finally, enjoy the sights and sounds of Ireland in September!

Keynote and Plenary Speakers include:

  • Eleanor Krohn Herrmann Keynote Address: Dr. Dorrie Fontaine - Compassionate Care through the Centuries: Highlights in Nursing History
  • Plenary Session: Dr. Christine Hallett - Neutrality, Engagement and Humanitarian Response: US Nurses and the First World War

This activity has been submitted to the Alabama State Nurses Association for approval to award contact hours.  Alabama State Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Because this year's meeting is abroad, the live auction will be condensed more so than when the conference takes place in the U.S. Attendees are encouraged to bring small items that can be easily transported during your travels to Dublin. Items could include jewelry, books, memorabilia, or even any services you or your institution/organization could provide. Please send an email beforehand to Gerard Fealy, gerard.fealy@ucd.ie, describing the item. If you wish to mail an item, please send it with a description and your contact information to:
