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 .
