[quote=KellieNurse06;2184277]I saw it....it didn't phase me at all.......You need to relax! lol! Ellen is a comedian & I honestly thought she was faking she injured her back until I sat & watched for a while then the MRI with the doc explaining it....... I think you read too much into the "nurse" who was with her...I bet she had her there kind of as a "spoof" towards people who try to portray nurses in that very manner.........I really think you read into it too much.....that's just my own opinion though.... I wasn't offended in any way at all....... Ellen just has that very dry sense of humor and I think she's pretty funny actually.......Please don't let that "nurse" get to you....life's too short to worry over such a minor thing......
imo, this isn't minor. it's a pathetic image problem and nurses like you allow it to go on.
there was nothing humorous about the doc though. there never is.
it's 2007, and you should care. we're the only group who would take this. however, i am very pro nursing and always was. even in 1986. my senior thesis was on the image of nurses. it was the year we said good bye to caps. we are where we are bc nurses like me took the time to insist on change, equality and growth.
like i tell my kids- stick up for yourself, because no one else will.
