Defining Hope

Walden University is proud to be a sponsor and the sole CNE provider of the movie: Defining Hope.

Defining Hope, a new documentary about people weighing what matters most at the fragile junctures in life—and the nurses who guide them—will be released in select theaters nationwide for special screenings on November 1st, in honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. Walden University is proud to support the dissemination of the new documentary, and through Walden’s support, nurses who attend the screenings in November will receive free continuing education (CNE) credits for watching the film. Walden University will be hosting special screenings in Atlanta, Baltimore, Houston, and Minneapolis for the Walden community.

“We recognize the urgent need for hospice and palliative care services has never been greater,” said Jonathan A. Kaplan, president of Walden University. “At Walden, we provide nurses and healthcare professionals with the tools and knowledge to make a difference in the lives of others, and we are proud to partner with Carolyn Jones Productions to jumpstart this critical conversation impacting our nation.”

Defining Hope screenings took place on Wednesday, November 1, in honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. This captivating documentary explores what to do—for ourselves and our loved ones—as we get closer to the end of life. Through the stories of patients with life-threatening illness, their loved ones and the nurses and healthcare professionals who guide them, the conversation around quality end-of-life care is brought to the forefront.

“It was always our dream to create a film that would educate and enlighten, and we’re thrilled to have Walden work with us to achieve our goal and further the conversation,” said Carolyn Jones, filmmaker and director.
