Why It Matters

At some point in our life each of us will encounter a nurse.  Nurses give us a powerful lens through which we can better understand life’s issues.  Aging and end-of-life care, bereavement services, and access to care for prison inmates, wounded veterans, the elderly and people living in poverty—these are the issues addressed in the film.  One of these issues probably affects your community. Take this film and use it to jumpstart a conversation about the issue.
