Summary
(Producer) Hospitals cannot run without nurses; yet nurses--complaining of being overworked and underpaid, of burnout and lack of career structure--are leaving the profession in ever-increasing numbers. Using Australia as a case study, this film explores the history of nursing and considers whether nursing can again become a challenging, independent profession. Utilizing a combination of interviews, archival and modern verité footage, dramatic re-creations, and stills--as well as the earliest records of nurses at work in etchings, woodcuts, and paintings--the film presents a portrait of nursing that provides insights into this often misunderstood profession
