Today in the LaCrosse Tribune, November 15th, I read an article about several nurses in Sauk County Wisconsin who put together an actual "calender girl" calender, apparently to help raise money for a benefit. I read this and was immediately sick to my stomach! What a huge blow for the image of nursing! I don't know what else to say other than HOW SAD! It makes me want to cry. After all the work and all the time that has been put into improving the image of nursing. After we have come so far! I don't want to work in a "Profession" if these are my "colleages". Will the state of Wisconsin PLEASE pull their licenses!

IMO you are completely out of line with your last line. These are nurses who obviously care and are trying to make a difference in the lives of others.
It's not like they're selling the calendars to school age children, grow up!!
Could they have done something else? Bake sale, maybe? Sure, but you see, this is America...land of the free...and as evidence by these ladies...the home of the brave. These ladies felt that this was a good way to get the word out and get their point across..oh, yes, and to HELP OTHERS.
So they want to be put Full Monty on a calendar and you think that makes ALL nurses look bad? Give me a break. Please don't lump these well meaning ladies with those RNs you know who have tried to give PO meds thru an IV. Let's focus on what's really bad...a few nude fortysomethings...or nurses who couldn't find the working end of a Foley with both hands and the directions.
Pull their licenses...gimme a break.
Astounded at your lack of compassion
