"Get a load of this" - page 2

I found this on the Spectrum nursing bulletin board: Tampa General Hospital wants nurses, offers doctors Tampa General Hospital may think sex sells, but nurses say they aren't buying. ... Read More

    Unfortunately, that whole "become a nurse and marry a doc" mentality still prevails... as evidenced by some of the threads on this board.

    Here ya go, Fergus...

    My dad's wife must have written that - that's how she landed him (didn't care whether he was married with a family) (after nursing she actually did PR for a hospital in that area )

    To top it off these are "Doctors in Training" Sheees!
    We are not just after docs; we want one who are not even trained. Now who among us doesn't just LOVE the intern or resident who needs more direction than a 2 yr old.

    Desperate times mean desperate measures. Hell even if I were remotely interested if I were to meet a doctor and marry him why in the world would I want to stay a nurse in the first place. That ad is purely stereotypical ***********!!!!!

    This ad infuriated me but then I thought...some will go for this. I work with nurses who still go gaga over the cute young docs. And unfortunately some would be only too happy to fall into bed with one. <sigh>

    And I know half a dozen or more who stole one away from the aging wife who put him through med school...

    I'm just dying to sign up so I can meet an intern and put him through school so he can turn around and divorce me for a younger model once he's got a thriving practice. I mean isn't that why we all go into nursing.....NOT!!!!

    Degrading as it sounds, every stereotype has an element of truth. It seems as though that IS a main goal for a lot of nurses I work with.

    Jeesh, I am almost embarassed to say I am from the area that hospital is located...If the ad was done by the "Weekly Planet" I can understand how it came about, (literaly this paper is on the same level as the "National Enquirerer") however, since the PR dept. at Tampa General let this thing through they should be ashamed of themselves..."The Weekly Planet" is given away, not sold here... Even though this post originated a year ago Tampa General deserves more e-mails from everyone to remind them how stupid they were. Hopefully they will learn to respect nurses a little more!

    Soooo..... if you go there and go to work and you don't get an eciting young intern.....that you have to help finish through school still even....can you sue the hospital for not following up on thier promise. Just what I need another God to take care of me.....NOT!!!! I thought the days of that is over but of course most of the nurses in ER are having relationships with doctors so that would be the reason that this is helping. I can't believe this....like all nurses would fall in loe with an older mature doctor.....what a bunch of b**l......

    Year old or not, this hospital needs to make a public apology. I emailed them, and here is my version:

    "Dear Sir/Madam

    I am a practicing CRNA in Kansas, looking to relocate to the south. I have been planning to contact you for some time to inquire about positions. Recently, however, someone brought your recruitment ad from one year ago to my attention. Apparently, since I am a male, and happily married, I would feel out of place at your hospital. It seems you are running a dating service for single nurses to meet future physicians. ("RNs! Don't Miss This Opportunity to Meet 600 Doctors In Training!")

    "Your ad is insulting and demeaning to all nurses. I would never consider working at a facility that apparently has such a low opinion of professional nurses. You owe a VERY public apology to all nurses, and should fire those involved in creating, implementing, and approving this insulting campaign."

    Wonder if I'll hear anything back.
