Listen to Nurses

connectRN believes nurses are the most valuable players in the healthcare system, yet nearly 9 in 10 American nurses think nobody understands the work they do. So for connectRN’s brand presence at the enormous “CES of healthcare,” HLTH, we envisioned a pop-up gallery that was disruptive not for its flashiness, but for its humanity: a series of larger-than-life faces, and a call for listening.

We asked 10 nurses to share their stories and perspectives with the healthcare community: why they chose nursing, what empowers them as a nurse, and perhaps most importantly, their hopes for building the future of healthcare.

Then we simply brought their stories and faces to the HLTH conference floor, as a series of larger-than-life portraits and corresponding audio documentaries.

We also brought the stories to life as a printed magazine and an online experience.
