    Frankly, I am sick and tired of nurses being portrayed as sex objects in print and media.

    Yeah . . . me too. I'd like to at least see what all the fuss is about.

    It's a restaurant where all the waitresses dress up as hooker nurses..the owner calls himself "Dr. John".... He doesn't seem to understand why nurses are so upset.

    It's disgusting that not only do they insult nurses, they glorify gluttony and unhealthful eating.

    You know, sometimes I wonder why I bother doing nursing any more when nothing about this crap ever changes. Ever. Respect, forget it. And I am disgusted by the "role playing" aspect of people who say they have a heart attack to their waitress who says OH I'm a nurse? and driving people out to their cars in wheelchairs?? Give me a break that's idiotic. Sorry don't mind me, I'm just depressed. I know someone will come on here soon and say something like "get over it" but today, after some hard weeks at work recently, it's just pushed some of the wrong buttons on me.

    Oh I get so tired sometimes I can hardly be nice to anyone. The whole world seems wrong.
    Then put it all aside for patient care.

    Please know that our importand work has nurses rated as the most trusted and most respected profession.
