Dr. Ruth Bax Edwards, professor of nursing at William Jewell College, will present the Carl F. Willard Distinguished Lecture on Tuesday, February 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the Gill Family Meeting Room in Yates- Gill College Union on the campus in Liberty, Mo. A reception will follow; the public is invited at no charge.

Dr. Edwards’ lecture is titled “Luck, Intentionality, and Drift.” She will present discussions from nurse educators on the NCLEX-RN preparatory strategies, student didactic and clinical learning outcomes, curricular development plans, and a multitude of day-to-day tactics for facilitating student learning. Dr. Edwards will dissect, assess, and reconfigure luck, intentionality, and drift in nursing education in a light-hearted vision of nursing and nursing education.

Dr. Edwards earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia, her master’s degree from the University of Texas-Austin, and her doctorate of education degree from the University of Kansas. She completed post-doctoral work at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She has taught every nursing student at William Jewell.

The Willard Lecture is named for the late Carl Willard, a trustee at William Jewell from 19067-1991. To honor Willard’s memory and perpetuate his ideals, friends established the Carl F. Willard Distinguished Teacher Award at William Jewell as a continuing investment in tomorrow’s leaders. The Faculty Development Committee recommends honorees to the Dean and President of the College, who make the final selection for the annual award.
