National Nurses Movement Launches Ad Campaign for Nurse TV Shows
Date:6/16/2009

l guarantee safe staffing in hospitals across America, as well as give nurses whistle-blower and patient advocacy protections.

"It's about time for nurses to be represented in popular culture, but there are important questions that RNs will consider as we watch these shows. We know these shows are Hollywood entertainment, but they're purporting to speak in the name of nurses, so we are watching and taking note. Will these shows reflect the struggle of nurses to care for their patients in the face of heartless insurance and hospital bureaucracy? Will they reflect the terrible burden of being overloaded with too many patients who are too sick? We look forward to finding out," said Deborah Burger, RN, co-President of CNA/NNOC.

"We need a national dialogue about the important work that nurses do, and this is happening just as our national nurses movement has come together for the good of all nurses and patients everywhere," said UAN President Ann Converso, RN. "We're excited that Sen. Boxer is taking the lead in the Senate on safe RN staffing, joining our friends in the House - Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) - in putting real, concrete solutions to the nurse staffing crisis on the table. We must make safe RN staffing ratios the law of the land; anything less puts our patients at risk."

"As patient advocates, we have to take this opportunity of these new television shows to press our agenda of safe staffing. Nurses have seen too many patients suffer unnecessarily because of the crisis in care caused by hospital understaffing. We are delighted for the chance to make this connection for our fellow nurses and the public," said Beth Piknick, RN, President of MNA.

The ads were produced by Bill Hillsman of NorthWoods Advertising and will run in nearly 20 cities across the country the first week.
