     THE AMERICAN NURSE is a heart-warming film that explores some of the biggest

issues facing America - aging, war, poverty, prisons - through the work and lives of

nurses. It is an examination of real people that will change how we think about

nurses and how we wrestle with the challenges of healing America. THE AMERICAN

NURSE is an important contribution to America's ongoing conversation about what it

means to care. The film follows the paths of five nurses in various practice specialties

including Jason Short as he drives up a rugged creek to reach a home-bound cancer

patient in Appalachia. Tonia Faust, who runs a prison hospice program where

inmates serving life sentences care for their fellow inmates as they're dying. Naomi

Cross, as she coaches an ovarian cancer survivor through the Caesarean delivery of

her son. Sister Stephen, a nun who runs a nursing home filled with goats, sheep,

llamas and chickens, where the entire nursing staff comes together to sing for a

dying resident. And Brian McMillion, an Army veteran and former medic,

rehabilitating wounded soldiers returning from war. 

Thanks to our friends at Nurse.com, any nurse that watches the film will be able to get free CE credits.
