Filmmaker Carolyn Jones and producer Lisa Frank have given the nursing profession a cinematic tribute to the work of nurses; not the singular accomplishment of one nurse but the subtle, interrelated work of five representative nurses of our time. They have made explicit of what is implicit in the quotidian of American nursing life. The film is a close-up portrayal of the essence and substance of nursing. The panelists will engage the audience in reflective discussion on the challenges and rewards of American nursing.
