Mary Catherine Bateson, called “one of the most original and important thinkers of our time,” will join the 2017 Creative Writing Awardees on stage with her keynote remarks.

One of our students’ assignments during their first clinical experience is to begin a journal. Through their journal they can watch their own transformation. Through their writing we can understand contemporary nursing and midwifery through the eyes, hands, and feelings of these remarkable students and soon-to-be APRNs.

YSN’s annual Creative Writing Awards are enlivened by the inspirational presence of YSN Professor Linda Honan. Yale nursing students submit their narratives, journal entries, and other creative writing for consideration of one of three significant student awards. This annual gathering, beloved by our community, also features prominent writers and thinkers. In 2016, author of Life, Animated Ron Suskind delivered a moving keynote address at this event.
