Prof. Margaret Carson at the Emmy AwardsIn this podcast, Professor Carson explains how she found out she was nominated for an Emmy, her experience attending the Emmy ceremony in New York City, and how her film connects with the college’s mission. She believes there is relevance for current students, as most of the nurses in her film were the same age during their Vietnam service as today’s college juniors and seniors.

Professor Carson spent more than a decade researching the stories of Vietnam nurses. She felt it was important to make a documentary film to ensure that these stories would not be lost to history.

    I hope the students of St.A’s realize and appreciate what a treasure they have in Professor Carson. Her intelligence, her humanity, and her dedication exemplify all that nursing should be. It’s a privilege to know her.
