    By media, if you mean the news, I think there isn't much being said about nurses. If you mean TV and movies, I think as a whole nurses on TV are presented as low class, unprofessional boobs (e.g., ER, daytime soaps). However, the movie "Wit" staring Emma Thomson is a great testimonial for nurses.
