Friday, May 9: ‘The American Nurse’ Comes to San Bernardino

SAN BERNARDINO, CA – In honor of Nurses Week, the Global Nursing Program will be showing the new film “The American Nurse” in the ASU Fox Theater in San Bernardino on Friday, May 9th at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 at the door or online at www.gNp193.com. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The American Nurse is a heart-warming documentary that gives a voice to nurses who are on the front lines of the biggest issues facing America, such as aging, war, poverty, prisons through the work and lives of five 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.

Professionals that see the documentary can earn 1.5 CE credits through an arrangement with www.nurse.com. A portion of the proceeds from The American Nurse Project have been earmarked to a new scholarship program under the auspices of the American Nurses Foundation.

The historic ASU Fox Theater was originally opened in 1929 and was the site for the West Coast premiere of the original “King Kong” film in 1933. It is located at 374 West Court Street in downtown San Bernardino, just a block from City Hall across the street from the Bank of America.

American Medical Response (AMR) Is Responding in Action to Assist The Time for Change Foundation. An AMR Ambulance came rolling into the Time for Change parking lot on Wednesday in order to respond to the overwhelming need for women’s clothing. AMR drivers and manager staff spent weeks collecting lightly used quality clothing to ensure that the clients at Time for Change have the required daily clothing needed and also professional clothing that will enable them to put their best foot forward when on a job interview.

Diana McCafferty, Manager of AMR Administration San Bernardino County came to Time for Change and asked, “How can we help Time for Change as a support partner?” Time for Change is grateful any time a company or individual asks the question, “How can we help your mission.” We thank the entire team that AMR brought to engage in the delivery of the gifted clothing and hygiene items. AMR is looking forward to expanding the engagement opportunities with Time for Change throughout the year. Diane McCafferty said, “AMR is honored to assist the residents of San Bernardino. Time for Change is making a direct impact in assisting those in need.”
