McGoogan Library Speaker Series: Pharaoh’s Midwives

April 11, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Mark Darby, MSN, RN, APRN, FNP-C, instructor in the College of Nursing at UNMC, will present at McGoogan Library‘s next Speaker Series on April 11 at noon. Mr. Darby will present on his book Pharaoh’s Midwives.


Darby has been a nurse for almost 40 years and is certified in Family and Mental Health as a nurse practitioner. He is the co-leader of the College of Nursing’s Creative Writing Project at UNMC and has been editor of the Journal of Nurse Jocularity for the past eight years. Darby self-published Pharaoh’s Midwives to answer the question: Are the Hebrew midwives in Exodus 1:15 – 21, named Shipporah and Puah, Hebrew or Egyptian, and why does that make a difference in the context of the racial tensions of society today?


This event is virtual. Registration for Zoom is required.
