Nurse Advocate Exhibits Nursing Images at U.S. Capitol
An exhibition of nursing photographs is on display this week at the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington, DC. The exhibit, Faces of Caring: Nurses at Work, is a collection by the American Journal of Nursing, which held an international contest in 2007 to find photographs that capture the important work nurses do.
The collection was first shown at New York University College of Nursing in New York City in 2007, with support from the Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future, the Beatrice Renfield Foundation, and the Jonas Center for Nursing Excellence. The collection has since moved around the country—you can request the exhibition for your organization—to increase awareness of the vital role of nursing.
The photos are in the nation’s Capitol this week due to the hard work of Kathleen Bartholomew, RN, MN, author, consultant, and tireless nursing advocate. Bartholomew sponsored the exhibition and will spend this week in the Rotunda with the photos, speaking to anyone and everyone about nursing.
Bartholomew was able to display the exhibition in the Senate building through the help of her home state U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, D-WA, and Sen. Patty Murray, D-WA.
