    Game-show scenario:

    3 nurses in the contestant spots, one white, one black, one male.

    Moderator is an elderly lady in a jonnygown with IVF lines dangling off her arm while she reads the question from the card:

    Ok next question: "Why don't you nurses wear your caps anymore?" [aside: "That's a good question.... you all looked so much more professional then....]

    Majorhunk Mark hits the response buzzer: camera pans to head shot, showing a perplexed Mark in a cap "So this is why it's so hard to recruit men...."

    [Voiceover]"Nursing: it's more than you think..."

    How about the nurse talking the MD through an unfamiliar procedure. An LP, insertion of umbilical cath, or -as happened at our hospital- a circumcision.

    Or rolling through a code situation with the doc right there- he finally chimes in to hang the Amniodarone drip as he recites it looking at his trusty pocket reference.

    Or endless phone calls advocating for adequate pain relief, (IV instead of IM puh-leeze?!)

    Come on folks- more ideas are out there...

    I'm rather fond of the mastercard commercials myself so mine would be a spin off of those :

    white nursing shoes - $110

    scrubs - $55.00

    overpriced cafeteria food - $9.40

    dry cleaning bill - $24.50

    Saving someones life - PRICELESS


    woooooopity wooooop!

    I'm loving that one...how about a busy floor with docs standing beside a beeping IV pump, a patient with a full tray of food at a table, a woman moaning in bed while alarms go off in the background...


    GOT NURSES?

    Heh,Heh

    And don't even get us started on consistent short staffing and lack of supplies, nurses making do under a time and budget crunch while admin offices have free food and drink, cushy new furniture and luxurious air conditioning.

    Just as patient passes out unnoticed, moniter alarming, but no one at the desk to see and respond.

    As nurse calls pharmacy for a much needed med to find they are all out, and stressed family members start to fuss in the background.

    As patient gets shuffled from bed to stretcher by unlicensed staff, pulling out IV and Foley in one fell swoop (ouch), and howls.

    Nurse turns to camera, "Can you hear me now?"

    Lrae - how about we go on to the surgical sterilzation and someone (perhaps a monkey) pulls a sterile instrument out of the clave, drops it on the floor, blows on it to "get the germs off" and puts it in the package . Doctors in the OR can be throwing darts over a patient at an outline of the human body ("hmmm - guess this one's got appendicitis - let's get it out!")

    OK, now I'm getting twisted!

    How about this one?

    Group of traditional-looking nurses standing and looking at the camera--maybe 10-15 of them. Suddenly suits toting paintball guns start firing. Nurses get hit. Some stand. Some vanish. In the background are several pts in jonnygowns sitting in ER waiting rooms.....

    [Voiceover: "When health care changed, nurses took a big hit. And without nurses...."]

    Patient keels over in waiting room, unnoticed by anyone. [5 seconds of silence...]

    [Voiceover: "Nurses: we do more than you think."

    I like that one, graphic and gets the point across.

    Maybe they could be caring for pts when an admin taps them, hands them the pink slip and they leave, other nurses automatically double their load, and of course someone dies unnoticed.

    Karen, any word from the ANA? Or should we expect to wait a few weeks?

    you all really have some good ideas for these commercials. I would watch a tv show that focused more on nursing, I think it would be interesting.
