Prof. Margaret Carson’s Film “Vietnam Nurses” Receives Emmy Award
October 1, 2007
Saint Anselm College Nursing Professor Margaret Carson attended the News and Documentary Emmy Awards in New York City on September 24, 2007. Her film, Vietnam Nurses With Dana Delaney, which originally aired on WE TV, was nominated for two awards: Outstanding Historical Programming - Long Form and for Outstanding Editing. She did not walk away disappointed, as her documentary received an Emmy award for editing.
In 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.
