"Welcome to our online community"
As the President of the Utah Nurses’ Association and in partnership with American Nurses Association, Utah Organization of Nurse Leaders, Utah Action Coalition of Health, and Utah Nurses Association, we invite you to be part of the national screening on
May 6, 2015 of
“The American Nurse”
A 90-minute feature film following the lives of five nurses and their patients
The American Nurse will be shown in Provo, Utah.
See the attached flyer for details.
This film is for all nurses as well as anyone thinking about becoming a nurse and is also a way to honor a nurse you love who is a member of your family or a close associate.
At each screening there will be a panel to discuss nursing as a career and answer questions you may have about nursing.
We hope to see you there!

Our banquet was well-attended with most of our award recipients present. We are honored to name the following outstanding nurses and their accomplishments. Please congratulate them when you see them! Or drop an email!!! Thanks to all who nominated candidates for these awards. (To be nominated was, in itself an award from the nurses who know you best.) The award decisions were difficult.
