Nursing in Film

I’m the subject librarian for our Nursing department, as well as being the audio visual librarian here.  Last year these two roles converged when I was asked to suggest films that portrayed nurses.  This year, a very similar request came across the videolib listserv.  Since I had something to share there, I thought I should share my list here as well.

I’ve taken my list, added the other list members’ contributions, and have done my best to give citation information as far as Studio or Distributor is concerned.

There are thousands of films that include a nurse, or the portrayal of a nurse.  If you want to search for some yourself, you may want to start with the Internet Movie Database.
