Nurses play a critical role in our health care system and have touched the lives of just about everyone, sometimes in the most intimate, difficult or joyful moments of the human experience. But most of us know little about what nurses do, or the realities of nursing.

Nurses - If Florence Could See Us Now offers a unique look into the complex and challenging world of being a nurse, exploring the many different roles that nurses play and their areas of practice, from the bedside to the board room, and the many ways that nurses impact the lives of others.

Filmed on location in 10 states across the country, more then 70 nurses are featured from hospitals, clinics, business, nursing schools and nursing associations, including bedside nurses, nurse practitioners, public health nurses, nurse educators and nurse leaders, among them the Corporate CNO of Kaiser Permanente and the CEO and President of the American Nurses Association.

The film would be useful in a wide range of health care, medical, nursing, career development, psychology and sociology classes.
