Maintenance Man like to tell me how to be a nurse:"OK, now I have the maintenance man who obviously just got a dime store nursing license telling me what to do. I tell him in a very direct tone of voice that I have 58 residents to watch, as soon as I was told that there was a resident on the floor I went to check her out. I also asked him if he knew this certain residents history of scooting out of her chair and how many times in the last week she has done this. Information that actual is none of his business."

    Bias (Gender) Continues, The (Male Nurse) Nursingdiscussions.com:"Okay, you'd think with the great press and ad campaigns that have been seen this past year, nursing associations and their executive directors would become more sensitive to gender biased statements being made to the press, but nooooooooo! Here's is a quote from a major newspaper (I'll leave nameless) by the Executive Director of that state's (which I'll also leave unnamed) nursing association."

Where you ever ridiculed for being a nurse and how? 4. Are you happy with your career choice and what other careers have you tried? 5. What are the advantages and disadvantages to being a male nurse? 6. How do male and female patients act differently around you?"

    Put Male Nurses In Panties, Nursingdiscussions.com:"A recent letter from a male nurse describing his experience of being forced to wear female underwear was most interesting. The girls who did this to him and his roommate were absolutely right. For some time now I have been concerned over the appearance of my male nurses. Most uniform trousers are not opaque enough to camouflage the fly fronts of men's jockey briefs. Bikini briefs look just as ridiculous because the low waistbands are frequently visible below the jacket half of the uniform."

(Mandatory Overtime) Law Bans Nurses' Overtime, Nursingdiscussions.com:"After a five-year battle, New Jersey has a state law barring hospitals and nursing homes from forcing health care employees to work overtime except in emergencies. Who does the law affect? The law covers all New Jersey hourly workers who provide patient care or clinical services, including nurses, nurses' aides, pharmacists, therapists, technicians who do tests and similar workers, but not doctors, who work at hospitals, nursing homes and in home health care. Nurses and union officials said the law, only the second in the nation, should improve patient safety and prevent mistakes that people who have been on the job for up to 16 hours can commit."

Media Exposure, Portrayal of Nurses:

    Does Pink "missundaztand" nurses? , Nursingadvocacy.org:"Missundaztood" dresses Pink's young misfit thing in safe rock and hip-hop styles, and the self-declared un-Britney emerges with a fairly engaging album for bubblegum pop graduates. Unfortunately, the record includes a prominent and troubling reference to nurses."
    http://www.nursingadvocacy.org

    ******************************************************

    ER, Nursingadvocay.org:"On behalf of the Center for Nursing Advocacy, I am writing about an issue of vital importance to the future of our nation: the state of the nursing profession. Media products under your influence, particularly the NBC/Warner drama "ER," are harming the profession of 2.7 million American nurses by giving the public an inaccurate and inadequate account of what nurses really do to save and improve lives. Research suggests that "ER" strongly and negatively influences the way children view nursing."
    http://www.nursingadvocacy.org

    ******************************************************

    "Learning The Bones." Nursingadvocay.org" Thoughtful, insightful and objective analysis from the Center staff--thank you. While I can understand why some readers would find the subject or its treatment uncomfortable or disturbing, that is clearly the point. As a piece of writing, as art, the piece works. And I agree that it casts no particular aspersions on nurses as a group."
    http://www.nursingadvocacy.org

    ******************************************************

    NBC's "Passions" solves nursing shortage: monkeys can do the job! Nursingadvocay.org:"Starting in March 2003 and at least as recently as late August, NBC's campy, supernatural daytime soap opera "Passions" has featured an orangutan named Precious in the role of the private duty nurse of one of its characters--a bold step backwards in the already slow...evolution...of the media's treatment of nurses."
    http://www.nursingadvocacy.org/

    ******************************************************

    "Scrubs" Defines Nursing, Nursingadvocacy.org:""Scrubs" defines nursing: it's all about shutting up and following physician "orders." Tonight's episode of NBC's "Scrubs," which purports to teach nurse Carla Espinosa that nursing is all about doing what physicians tell you, is one of the most virulently anti-nurse prime time television episodes the Center has ever seen."

    ******************************************************

    "Will & Grace" Bombshell, Nursingadvocacy.org:"In its November 13 episode, NBC's popular sitcom "Will & Grace" began a wacky but worrisome foray into the world of "student nursing." Though no one takes what the show does at face value, this episode's treatment of nursing was misleading and damaging to the profession."

      Medical School? (Why not), Nursingdiscussions.com:"Was asked an interesting question a few days ago, by a teenager who is interested in the healthcare industry. She didn't know whether she wanted to become a doctor or a nurse, and asked me a question. Which should I become? And why would someone become a nurse, especially with a BSN and not want to become a doctor? I didn't have an answer for her."
