Nurses wearing masks and face shield

Earlier this year the American Nurses Association, premiered a documentary called “American Nurse Heroes” which investigates the lives of nurses selflessly working during the pandemic. This ground-breaking documentary is called a “captivating love letter to nurses” providing a “unique viewpoint on the struggles and hardships during the pandemic that shook the world” (ANA, 2021). The documentary is 54 minutes long and gets rave reviews!
