Our first guest speaker on January 11th is Natalie Stake-Doucet. Her topic is entitled, "The Racist Lady with the Lamp".

This lecture is part of a new speaker series hosting by UNLV Nursing called, "Conversations for Leaders on Dismantling Systems of Oppression." Each lecture will have a different guest speaker (including experts from UNLV and across the country) to provide engaging discussions on identifying systemic racism and how to neutralize it.

About Natalie Stake-Doucet, RN, MSc, PhD(c)

Natalie has been a nurse since 2010 in Canada. She’s worked in rural and urban hospitals, as well as in forensic psychiatry. She is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Montreal, studying the sociopolitical regulation of bedside nurses’ work in hospitals. Her work has led her to examine the relationship of hospitals and nursing and develop a critical perspective on the Nightingale nursing reform that firmly entrenched nursing education and training within hospitals. This led her to a broader examination of the way Nightingale is erroneously portrayed in nursing and attempts to shed light on the racist and sexist roots of modern nursing.

She’s used her study of the history and sociology of hospital nursing work to articulate and contribute to nursing struggles in Quebec, notably through media analysis, policy briefs and numerous op-eds on how forced overtime and austerity measures affect nurse retention and patient care. She is president of the Quebec Nurses Association, a grassroots nursing organization dedicated to social justice in healthcare and to promoting the political voice of nurses.
