Not sure where this goes since it is a PBS story, or it is news? https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=BP2VaWCmxDI... Read More

    Notice the "Global Policy Nurse" is the only one in a skirt, heels and pearls? Not to mention surrounded by her very plush living room in what is probably a lovely home. Oh and petting her dog with those nicely manicured hands.

    Am not hating, just sayin! *LOL*
    Two other nurses (numbers 2 & 5) are also in business attire, although they are only pictured in a profile shot. Honestly, if I were going to get my picture taken for something job-related, I'm not sure if I would choose scrubs or business attire.

    Wish I hadn't read the comments. I'm horrified people think of nurses this way. I'm not mean to my patients. I respect my co workers, doctors and aides. I did my clinicals in Mental Health and I was heart-broken over some of those people. Hence, I know I cannot work in mental health, I would go home every night and cry. And honestly, I am one who will put all the letters after my name because, you know what? I worked my behind off to get those letters and I deserve them. I cannot believe the mean spiritedness of some of those people. Most nurses I know are kind, caring, compassionate people. I believe most people period are kind, good people. Otherwise, what are we doing in this profession? Why help people if you believe them to be undeserving? Am I the only one who who thinks this?

    Yes, it is just silly to put MSN and BSN after RN every time you sign your name. Just put the MSN if you have to put something.

    Doctors accumulate degrees on their way to being doctors. But all they put after their names is MD or DO from what Ive seen. They have batchelors and masters, too.

    MD, PhD is very common.

    Please choose business attire if that is what you normally wear for work. These days everyone and their mother is running around in scrubs. *LOL*

    I take back my MD, PhD comment. It should really be PhD, MD. Educational degrees precede professional titles.

    That's the same reason I can't work in pediatrics.

    Unfortunately, the Internet tends to bring out the worst in people because they think (key word) they are anonymous, that there's no way they can be traced and held accountable for their words. I'd bet that most of the posters who posted unkind comments wouldn't dare say them to anyone's face.

    I used to work with someone whose daughter was a NASCAR nurse at Bristol. She said it wasn't too bad unless there was a wreck--then things would get interesting.

    I'm surprised they've never heard of flight nurses either.

    I'll settle for being the Disneyland nurse when I grow up.
    In the Air Force one of our special duty assignments is White House nurse. I think that's cool!
