"Touch has the power to heal." That's what photographer Carolyn Jones says she discovered when she interviewed nurses across the country for her new book, "The American Nurse." She met nurses who worked with prisoners and amputee veterans, who cared for some of the first AIDS patients, and who survived Hurricane Katrina. She spoke with over 70 nurses, including the nurse who changed Carolyn's own life when she battled breast cancer.

Host: Scott Shafer
