Free showing May 6 of inspirational film on nursing

In observance of National Nurses Week, Grays Harbor College Nursing faculty and students will host a showing of the new documentary, “Nurses, If Florence Could See Us Now,” at 2 p.m. Monday at the Bishop Center on the GHC campus in Aberdeen.

The film tells of the joys and sorrows associated with nursing and the multitude of ways nurses impact the lives of people. More than 100 nurses were interviewed for the film.

GHC Nursing faculty will respond to questions afterwards and will host a reception to honor past, present and future nurses at the Bishop Center. There is no charge to attend the program.

The event “will recognize our own nursing students and nurses in the community, as well as giving special recognition to the college’s nursing class of 2012 for the group’s 100 per cent pass rate of the State Board of Nursing licensing exam,” said Nursing instructor Monica Todd.

National Nurses Week is observed May 6-12 and May 6, the day of the film viewing, is RN Recognition Day. The observance ends on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of the modern nursing profession.
