film stillA Perspective of Hope

In an innovative approach to improving the long-term care of the elderly, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Teaching Nursing Home Program established clinical affiliations between nursing homes and university schools of nursing in twelve sites throughout the United States. This film looks at the impact of this unique project on the lives of individual nursing students, faculty, staff members and, most importanly, patients and their families. It presents a positive but realistic view of the obstacles and rewards of nursing on the frontiers of change. 29 minutes, © 1987

Nursing Shortage/Level III

The AIDS epidemic, our aging population, hospital cost-cutting, and other factors are producing more and sicker patients, at the same time that there are fewer nurses to care for them. Experts predict the crisis will be both more severe and longer-lasting than cyclical shortages of the past. This award-winning video follows nurses in one hospital as they respond to the daily challenges of providing quality care despite severe staffing shortages. It confronts patients, families, and the public with the reality that the nursing crisis is already affecting the way they are cared for in hospitals. 28 minutes, © 1990
