Texas Health Dallas Nurse Project introduced

March 29, 2013 by  

The Texas Health Dallas Nurse Project was launched recently, following the presentation of the American Nurse Project, which is a non-profit organization.

The annual conference of the Texas Organization of Nurse Executives (TONE) took place on March 1 at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, honoring three nurses – Jane Champion from Uvalde, Debra DuBiois of Dallas, and Manny Munoz from El Paso.

The program aims to use film and photography to capture the American nurses’ personal stories in front of an audience. The images will be revealed by Rhonda Collins, Vice President for Fresenius Kabi USA, to celebrate the compassion of the women in their nursing career, as well as their dedication and courage. According to Collins, the three women act as an inspiration to others, showing dedication and commitment to nursing.

The American Nurse Project started when photographer Carolyn Jones travelled across the U.S. capturing the experiences of nurses at work, using photography and film. A book was released in 2012 called ‘The American Nurse’, displaying the striking images taken on the journey. The American Nurse Project expanded to other American states, which included Texas. Following the success of the project, the Texas Health Dallas Nurse Project was launched.

Carolyn Jones spoke of her pleasure following the launch of the Texas project, adding that the mission was to give nurses a voice using film and photography. Local printing services may have been required to publicize the release of the book and the launch of the Texas Health Dallas Nurse Project.
