The American Nurse

The American Nurse: Photographs and Interviews by Carolyn Jones, published in 2012, chronicles the life and work of 75 nurses from across the country. The goal of the project was to raise the volume of nurses’ collective voice, but Jones found that she also gained a better understanding of America itself by experiencing it through the lens of these incredible caregivers. The nurses featured in this book come from all walks of life and took many different paths to arrive at nursing, but each and every one of them faces the daily task of providing compassionate care to patients.
