Documentary, panel discussion to explore ‘The American Nurse’

Nov. 17, 2014, 5:04 PM

The lives and work of five nurses on the front lines of the biggest issues facing America—aging, war, prisons and poverty—are explored in a new documentary film that will screen Tuesday, Dec. 2, at the Carmike Bellevue 8. The American Nurse begins at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Vanderbilt School of Nursing professor Betsy Kennedy and featuring nursing leaders Robert Nash, Colleen Conway-Welch, Mavis Schorn, Carol Etherington and Gina Betts.

See a trailer for The American Nurse.

Tickets to the screening may be purchased in advance on fandango.com or movietickets.com.

For a limited time, nurses who view the documentary can earn 1.5 hours of free CNE.

The Dec. 2 event is hosted by the Tennessee Nurses Association District 3. A portion of the proceeds will benefit a new scholarship program under the auspices of the American Nurses Foundation.
