Center for Nursing Advocacy Awards

Thumbmnp524602fig21I'm not sure how familiar everyone is with the Center for Nursing Advocacy, but take a look at this article: Nurses and the Media: The Center for Nursing Advocacy  We interviewed the nurse who initiated this center about the harmful portrayals of nurses in the media -- "naughty" nurses, angelic nurses, and as she points out, in the most popular medical TV shows, INVISIBLE nurses. Don't miss the "awards" the Center gave to many of the most popular TV shows (Grey's Anatomy, House), books, commercials, and more.

In case you missed this

Logo60_percent_2 In a New York Times op-ed article (May 20), Terri Mills shares her thoughts in "America's Nurse". She has an interesting idea. See what you think about the 'National Nurse' idea or…maybe it should be the Nurse General? Anyway, share your thoughts/comments with the Medscape Nurses readers.
