"The American Nurse is a heartwarming portrait of those real-life heroes that risk their lives every day, through pandemics, cancer wards and hospice care. This deeply moving documentary explores some of the biggest issues facing America – aging, war, poverty, and prisons – through the work and lives of nurses. You will meet Jason Short, who works with home-bound patients in Appalachia; Tonia Faust, who provides hospice care to prison inmates; Naomi Cross, bringing babies into the world in Labor & Delivery; Sister Stephen,
running a nursing home where the entire staff comes together to sing for dying residents; and Army veteran Brian McMillion, who rehabilitates wounded soldiers returning from war. The American Nurse is an empathetic examination of the profession that will change how we think about nurses and how we wrestle with the challenges of healing America."
