The American Nurse
Author, Producer, Photographer

Carolyn Jones is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker who specializes in telling stories that shed light on issues of global concern. From people “living positively” with AIDS to women artists supporting entire communities and nurses on the front lines of our healthcare system, Jones has devoted her career to celebrating invisible populations and breaking down barriers.

Her most widely acclaimed book publications include Living Proof: Courage in the Face of AIDS and The American Nurse, which led to a feature documentary included in the U.S. State Department’s American Film Showcase. In the spring of 2018 her award-winning documentary Defining Hope, which was the culmination of a journey investigating how we can make better end-of-life choices, was broadcast over 1,000 times on PBS stations nationwide.

Carolyn is currently in post-production on her latest project, a documentary called In Case of Emergency about the important and unique role that nurses play in Emergency Departments across the country.

3Rd Annual Black & Gold Gala

Ensuring Nurses for Tomorrow.

For 35 years, the Nursing Foundation of Pennsylvania (NFP) has provided nurses with scholarships and educational programming through a partnership with the Pennsylvania State Nurses Association.

For the 17th consecutive year, nurses were ranked highest for honesty and ethical standards, earning them the top spot among a diverse list of professions. Today, NFP offers you an opportunity to give back to this profession.

Scholarships enable recipients, including students and graduate nurses returning to school, to focus on their studies. A highly educated nursing workforce results in better patient outcomes and more efficient, cost-effective care.

We invite you to join us in our efforts to provide the resources necessary to prepare a nursing workforce that is critical to meeting our nation’s healthcare needs. As healthcare advances, nurses are committed to securing and furthering their education, improving the level of care delivered to you, your loved ones, and every person in the community. Please help to make this possible with your contribution.

Your donation is helping to make our community healthier. Right here. Right now.

Sponsor A Table

Healthcare | Remember | Celebrate

You are invited to sponsor a table at the 2020 Black and Gold Gala for the benefit of the Nursing Foundation of Pennsylvania (NFP). Sponsorship is a way to honor a loved one who is or has been in the healthcare industry. You could choose to honor your father, mother, sister, cousin, friend and a special nurse who went above and beyond in serving patients.

The cost is $150.00 per table. A photograph of honorees will be displayed on the table. The table will be referred to as the name of the honoree’s table.

This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize the men and women who selflessly give so much to so many.

Deadline for Sponsorship is October 9, 2020
