Isabel Maitland Stewart Research Conference
The Stewart Conference on Research in Nursing was established in 1953 in honor of Isabel Maitland Stewart (1878-1963), Director of the Department of Nursing Education at Teachers College (TC) from 1925-1947. Prior to assuming this position, she served as the Asssistant to the Director, M. Adelaide Nutting. Miss Stewart developed the first course dealing specifically with the teaching of nursing, a course that eventually was expanded to become an entire program for the preparation of teachers of nursing at TC. The Stewart Research Conference provides a forum for all nurses, including TC students, alumni and health care professionals to share their research with nursing's scholarly community and to learn about the latest trends and issues in research, education, and practice.
