“We look at the role of nurses on both the front lines of healthcare, as well as the backbone of patient treatment.”
"Nurses: Their Vital Role in Transforming Healthcare," narrated by Joan Lunden, is a half-hour documentary exploring the impact of nurses on our nation’s health care system, in our community, on patients and their families, and of course, on the nurses themselves. We look at the role of nurses on both the front lines of health care, as well as the backbone of patient treatment. We see nurses as innovators in health care–like pain detection in newborns. We see how their observational skills, advanced knowledge, interventions and compassionate care help patients manage their medical needs.
"Nurses" also explores critical issues in the health care system that, if changed, could allow nurses to practice to the full extent of their education across the country. Experts discuss how nurses, working together with all the stake holders including patients, physicians, providers and insurance companies, can improve patient outcomes while reducing the costs of health care in the future. This video is intended to engage communities, health care leaders and government officials in the discussion around the impact of nursing.
