Meg Carson’s Book Spawns a Documentary on Vietnam Nurses

August 18, 2006

A forthcoming book by Meg Carson, associate professor of nursing, is the basis for a documentary on Vietnam War nurses that will premiere Aug 18 and 19 on WE TV. “Vietnam Nurses with Dana Delaney” will air at 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 18, and 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 19. Dana Delaney, who narrates the documentary, played an Army nurse on “China Beach,” the ABC-TV series on Vietnam nurses.

The program is based on The Fine Art of Nursing Care: Lessons in Healing from War and Art, a book by Carson and Linda Finke that will be published in the spring by Sigma Theta Tau, the nursing honor society. Carson has long had a research interest in nurse veterans of the Vietnam War. The documentary will later be available on DVD.
