WSNA is pleased to announce screenings of the new documentary, Defining Hope, on Nov. 1.

Defining Hope follows eight patients with life-threatening illness and the nurses who guide them. The film is being released in select theaters nationwide for special screenings on Nov. 1 in honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.

Washington state screenings include:

You can buy advance tickets online once they are available (click through on the theater names above). Nurses will receive 1.25 free contact hours for watching the film and completing the evaluation thanks to the generous support of Walden University. Walden University is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Defining Hope explores what makes life worth living and what to do for ourselves and our loved ones as we get closer to the end of life. Through the stories of patients, families, nurses and health care professionals, the conversation around quality end-of-life care is brought to the forefront.

Defining Hope is produced by Carolyn Jones Productions, the same team that created The American Nurse Project, an award-winning photography book and documentary film celebrating nurses. Defining Hope is made possible through the generous support of the Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare, the American Nurses Foundation, Jeannie Patz Blaustein, The E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, and Walden University.
