In honor of nurses and all essential workers on the front line, Gold Coast Arts Virtual Cinema Series is proud to present a free screening of the acclaimed film "The American Nurse," available from April 27 through May 31.

Marking the sixth anniversary since its release in 2014 and based on the critically acclaimed and award-winning book, "The American Nurse," is a heart-warming film that explores some of the biggest issues facing America — aging, war, poverty, prisons — through the work and lives of nurses. It is an examination of real people that will change how we think about nurses and how we wrestle with the challenges of healing America. "The American Nurse" is an important contribution to America's ongoing conversation about what it means to care. The documentary highlights the lives of five American nurses from diverse specialties, bringing to the big screen a sincere look at the commitment, necessity, and compassion behind this profession that impacts us all.

A special Q&A with director Carolyn Jones, producer Lisa Frank, and Gold Coast Arts Festival Director Caroline Sorokoff will follow the film.

Nurses receive one free contact hour, limited time only, for watching the film and completing the evaluation, thanks to the generous support of Walden University. To receive your contact hours and more information, visit
