Thank you Johnson & Johnson

Johnson & Johnson, a well known supporter of nurses and nursing for a long time, has pulled it's advertising from the view after disparaging remarks toward nurses about a week ago.  For that, we thank them.

Johnson and Johnson has had commercials on TV for some time promoting nursing as  an effort to recruit more nurses into the profession. They call it " the campaign  for nursing's future". The whole "you're a nurse, you make a difference" cornball song.  Even though that commercial was lame, the thought is appreciated.

They have had some really good views of nurses on their commercials, including one about ER Nurses that I have included.

This whole debacle is an example of how little the public knows about our job .

OK, now I'm crying. I was lucky enough to work in the small ER in Key West's larger hospital in the late 70's as the desk clerk/triage. There I was witness to scenes that have never left me. Watching my nurses in action was an education in sincere commitment that I have not witnessed in any other job in the intervening four decades. You have never let me down; despite the conditions under which you labor (and they can be horrific) day after day.

Thank you for all you do.

pass the damn kleenex please

These days, the decision to attend graduate school is becoming more and more of a necessity to differentiate yourself within the career marketplace. However, many prospective applicants underestimate the importance of the personal statement in the graduate admissions process. See more famous tv nurses

That song makes me vomit. And why zap someone while trying to assess responsiveness? OF COURSE the patient won't respond if in a dangerous arrhythmia.
