American Nurse Project

Honoring nurses across America

Appalachian Hospice and Home Health Services was honored to have one of our own, Jason Short, featured in this extraordinary book of 75 portraits, interviews, and biographies of nurses from all across America.

The American Nurse Project was an endeavor launched by Fresenius Kabi who enlisted the talents of award-winning filmmaker Carolyn Jones and her producer, Lisa Frank. The project set out to capture and share the images and stories of nurses from all across America, like Jason. In The American Nurse, readers are invited to think about nurses in a way that they may never have before, unless they have been under a nurse’s care. This body of work will inspire audiences to focus their attention on the nurses who serve as healers in their community, and whose wealth of knowledge needs to be tapped in order to solve today’s pressing healthcare issues.
