Defining Hope Debuts on Nov. 1st, at a Theater Near You
One day viewing of this feature-length film sponsored in part by HPNA and grants through the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation.

Join thousands of other nurses across the country for the one-day theatrical viewing of the feature length documentary Defining Hope, taking place in over 100 locations across the country on Wednesday, November 1, 2017.

This feature-length documentary tells the story of eight patients with life-threatening illness - and the nurses who guide them - as they make choices about how they want to live, how much medical technology they can accept, what they hope for, and how that hope evolves when life is threatened. It is from the award winning author and director Carolyn Jones, creator of The American Nurse Project.

We invite all members of the public, especially nurses in all specialties, to attend this screening. Nurses can earn 1.25 free contact hours by watching the film and completing the available evaluation. Viewing locations and tickets are available through the film's web site at

Through a generous gift from the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation, 10 HPNA chapters will be sponsoring hosting parties on that date. For a list of those locations, as well as other HPNA related viewing locations, view the web site below. We look forward to seeing you at the theater on November 1.
