MTV has a new "reality" show premiering in September called Nursing Nation, This is MTV's description of the show:
is a new docu-series that follows nine twenty-something travel nurses all assigned to work at a new hospital in a brand new city for 13 weeks. Some of them have been doing this for years, while others are on their first tour. Cameras will be there every step of the way as they take on the unique challenges and intense pressures of working in the medical profession as they face life or death decisions every day. But it's not 'all work and no play.' On days off, they take advantage of all that their host city has to offer, meet new people and potential new loves while often trying to keep previous relationships and friendships alive. It's the ultimate 'work-hard/play-hard' lifestyle."
Do you have concerns about MTV's possible Portrayal of nurses? Nurses have worked hard to obtain the amount of public trust that we have. Do you think this show could tarnish that reputation? Do you think it will enhance it? Do you think it will attract new people to the profession? Will people become nurses for the wrong reason? Weigh in.
