The American Nurse: Healing America

Please plan to join us for "movie night"

We will be viewing the ground-breaking film, "The American Nurse", in our School of Nursing's newly renovated Founders Auditorium. Come explore some of the biggest issues facing America - aging, war, poverty, prisons - through the work
and lives of nurses. The film will be followed by a facilitated discussion. In the words of author and director, Carolyn Jones,

"When I started to dig into the world of nurses for The American Nurse Project, I recognized a few things right away. Nurses are different.They see the human being first. They are trained, conditioned, born to find the avenue into understanding others so that they can do their work. That work is to heal and make someone feel better - no matter who they are, what their ethnic background is, what political party they belong to, what crime they have committed. This gives them a special set of tools. They are full of tolerance and understanding, compassion and love."

So mark your calendars!
