The view is going down/nurses are sick and tired of the lack of respect


More advertisers are jumping ship from the view. Sweet. I hope they cancel this idiot fest.

I hope all of this makes nurses realize how much power we have.  There are over 3 million of us in this country.  Our numbers give us power.  We need to use it. The problem with our profession is we are too nice. We let people shit all over us, from the patients to the doctors to the management.

I am going to take a giant leap out there and say we are the most important people in the health care system.  Wow, you mean more important than doctors??  Yup. We are the people that actually CARE for the patients. We are there 24/7.  Without us, patients don' t get better, they develop complications, they die.

The reaction of nurses to the view comments reflects the exhaustion of nurses across this country. Our jobs become more and more complex an stressful. We work our butts off daily, with little recognition. We are EXHAUSTED. We are FED UP. Then somebody has the audacity to dismiss us as a profession on national TV.  Uh no...I don't think so.....

Can I swear at those bitches on the view? I have hated the way they do that show since it started and so I don't watch and didn't see the nurse show-must go find the clip.

You are by far, the most important member of the health care team; I know that with every fiber of my being. It's been nurses who have saved me every time my gastroparesis rears its ugly ass, who've stitched up the lacs of those I love more than a few times so proficiently that the scars are nearly invisible in some cases. No doctor has ever done so well.

I could go on but I won't - I've made my point. You make the medical world work.
