HC 103: American Nurse

An Overview for Helping Professionals and Clinicians

NOTE: This video contains images that may be upsetting to some viewers


Confronted with a U.S. population that is growing, aging and facing deteriorating health, the eye-opening documentary, The American Nurse, showcases 5 fearless nurses as they serve on the frontlines of healthcare — navigating their patients through birth, death, prison, war and harsh poverty.  In addition, with the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020 – the front lines of healthcare (many of whom are nurses) are strained emotionally – suffering from severe psychological trauma.  As clinicians and helping professionals – it is imperative that we have a deeper understanding of what they go through “on the front lines” as we provide them with counseling, social work and other services.   From award-winning filmmaker Carolyn Jones, the film will leave you informed and inspired by the amazing nurses that serve our communities every day.  Supplemented by an overview of the profession — with demographics, historical considerations, and challenges and opportunities, this online course will provide participants with a better understanding of the nursing profession, its vital role in our healthcare system, and the critical linkage nurses play in building and sustaining healthy communities.  In viewing this eye-opening documentary film, the clinician/helping professional will gain better insights into what healthcare professionals go through on a day-to-day basis and thus, gain insights into being able to provide better treatment and resources to these clients in need.
