At some point in our life each of us will encounter a nurse, whether it be as a patient or as a loved one,” said filmmaker and photographer Carolyn Jones, director of THE AMERICAN NURSE. “And that one encounter can mean the difference between suffering and peace; between chaos and order. With nurses risking their lives today responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, I am so glad that we are able to make the film available to people in their homes for free.” SANDY ZIMMERMAN: Award-winning Sandy Zimmerman produces television programs, documentaries, TV commercials, filmed a Cattle Drive in Reno, Nevada, travel specials in the US and around the world, as a Photographer/ Videographer/ Editor/ Talk Show Host of Sandy Zimmerman’s Las Vegas TV television program, airing 6 X’s each week and “Discover the Ultimate Vacation” travel specials.
