    The King International Nursing Group has just established an Events collection on the Virginia Henderson Global Nursing e-repository so that abstracts and slides from our biannual conferences can be included on the e-repository.

    We are also hoping to establish another collection, associated with the K.I.N.G., that would include all documents/scholarly efforts that use Imogene King's work and related theories.

                                                                                             NURSING THEORY WEBSITE - NURSOLOGY

    In September, 2018, a group of self-appointed volunteers with expertise related to nursing knowledge development, launched, a website to provide a repository of nursing theories, models, and philosophies, and to serve as central source for resources, debate, and exploration of issues related to the development of nursing knowledge.  One of the little-known facts related to nursing knowledge development is the existence of organizations, like K.I.N.G., that provide inspiration and support for the ongoing development of nursing knowledge, and the fact that these groups hold regular events where nurses can gather to focus on the ideas related to a specific area of nursing knowledge.  So we have included, on, information about these organizations and their events.  Information about nursing organizations can be accessed from the "Resources" menu, and the organizations are grouped by "Nursing Knowledge-focused Groups" and "Scholarly Research Societies."  The 2019 Collaborative K.I.N.G. conference is on the list of "Future Events" as well.  When you access the conference information you will see brief summary information about the conference, plus links to the conference website and registration information! has already become an invaluable resource, not only for nurses everywhere, but for those in the general public who can learn more about the amazing realm of nursing - nursology!  We invite you to take some time to explore the many nooks and crannies of the site, and to contribute to the site in any way you can!  We have forms for everything - you can contribute a blog post, or information about a theory, or exemplars of ways in which nursing knowledge is being applied in practice, research, education, policy or quality improvement!  We welcome your feedback - you can contact us anytime using our "contact" form on the site -
