An award-winning writer and photographer team with Penn Medicine to highlight the critical role–and need–of nurses with Just a Nurse—an exhibit of nearly 100 photographs that capture the rigors and rewards of nursing, at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP). The exhibit coincides with National Nurses Week. It features the work of photographer Earl Dotter and writer Suzanne Gordon, journalists renowned for their ability to chronicle “on the job” heroism and sacrifice. Nurses from all 40 HUP units were photographed and interviewed through the fall and winter. The exhibit illustrates the wide range of roles and responsibilities nursing entails, and the intense day-to-day pace at a major, 772-bed urban academic medical center.

Just a Nurse continues through May 18 in the Mezzanine of HUP. It can be viewed daily from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and admission is free. More information is available at (215) 662-2560 or www.uphs.upenn.edu/news/News_Releases/index.shtml.
