New TV Show- Nurse Nation on MTV

  1. Have y'all heard about the new TV show MTV is working on titled 'Nurse Nation'!? I don't have the quote from Entertainment Weekly, but it reads something like "a docuseries thay follows 9 young hard-partying travel nurses as they explore a new city for 13 weeks."

    The premiere date has yet to be announced, but MTV has greenlit the show and others to replace the hole that Jersey Shore is leaving in their network. What are your thoughts? Excited to watch it or annoyed at how they may portray travel RNs?

    Def annoyed! Now I'm gonna have to listen to everyone's stereotypes about what they think life is like as a travel nurse! I know jersey people get annoyed at how they were portrayed. Hopefully any people with intelligence won't believe that we all are young hard-partiers! I think nurses should be a respected profession so hopefully the show isn't too bad... Not to mention young teens aspiring to be travel nurses for the wrong reasons. People already get the idea that we are all rolling around in money, so this won't help matters any! Haha...

    RNs are not the only travelers! That's 1 and 2 thanks for saying nurses. I think it would be interesting

    I looked it up and in the article I read it talked about the nurses traveling and exploring their new city on their off days, meeting men, etc.

    If they're portrayed as big boozers I will be annoyed but if it just shows them having fun after work sounds good to me!!

    When is this show supposed to air. The description sounds good so far. Doesn't sound too demeaning.

    It is a reality TV show on MTV for crying out loud. Of course it will be demeaning and sensational. Not to mention stupid.

    I'm sure a respectable network like MTV will give an unbiased portrayal of the people they selected, who are almost certainly mild mannered average representations of the profession. I'm sure that we will all have a warm fuzzy feeling after watching the show and we should be grateful that they found some time between all the music videos to air this soon-to-be-classic.

    Oh wow. I can't see it catching on like jersey shore so I'm not too worried. I'm excited because what we do is pretty cool IMO. I just hope the nurses they choose aren't complete idiots.
