Nurses play a critical role in any patient's life ... but sometimes, even they forget just how important they are.

Kelley Johnson, also known as Miss Colorado, is no stranger to that feeling.

The 22-year-old Miss America contestant skipped the traditional song-and-dance routine earlier this week and instead spoke openly about a turning point in her career as a nurse during the talent portion of the Miss America pageant.

And has everyone seen this?

So annoying...Joy Behar obviously has no idea what a nurse does with her "doctor's stethoscope".

On their Facebook page, they are being roasted for their ignorant statements. If they didn't know how wrong they were before they will now!

Technically speaking nurse's don't use stethoscope they use phonendoscope ;-)

It has been said that even bad publicity is good publicity; I will bet their numbers rise as people flock to watch the show, looking for an apology, more comments/"jokes", etc. Ad revenue may also climb for the next week. Even if there is a "boycott" of the show by those who were offended, such will likely not last for long because these women are better known and recognizing "views" shared by many nurses and other folks.

I recall when Joy Behar did some funny stuff (schticks) on radio. Then she (like Colmes, Franken, et al) let other stuff take over her soul and is not even funny anymore. :(

Almost 40,000 signatures in less than 24 hours!

The petition to Walt Disney Corp and the hosts was updated today to say that we do not accept the insincere comments and backhanded insults about being unable to listen and understand the intent.

Johnson & Johnson released a statement saying they were asking ABC to not run their advertising during the time the show runs.
