    I know for one that Oprah is very sensitive when it comes to babies and their moms. I also know what she is doing in South Africa. Her actions are glaring. Let us write to her to join the missing link - the Nurses -
    As someone has rightly put it - a special for Nurses will not cost her much!!!

    Personally, I don't see how anyone could choose her t o champion the nursing cause.
    I really have no respect for her at all.
    Please enlighten me to her attributes

    After reading the article, this woman scares me. What if in her next show she will order her couch-bound followers to worship nurses? We'll have to make our way to work through mobs of 60 millions brainwashed individuals.

    Scott Pelley did a fabulous presentation at the AORN Congresss this year in Orlando, and he usually never does these things! He loves nurses, and promised to give us some attention on 60 Minutes, so stay tuned in. Too bad it was copyrighted, or we could get a copy of the tape. It was extremely moving, and was a great tribute. Thanks, Scott!

    I think a good start would be to have Laura Gesparis (?sp) on Oprah. I don't always agree with the things that Oprah does, but she is a big name and is able to carry on a converstation with some class. Have you ever heard Laura talk about nursing, she is funny yet accuarte. She has degrees out the wazoo and yet still works as a staff nurse, she knows what both ends are like. She is also not afraid of tuff topics. Did anyone see her on I think it was the Ted Coppell show. Go to Laura's web site and watch it.

    Oprah will never do a show about nurses, she is all about teachers, moms, and africa, which not to bash her we all have our passions, those are hers
