Nurse Jackie: Ethical or Criminal?
April 14, 2010 2:31 PM by Gail Guterl
In the latest episode of Nurse Jackie (played by Edie Falco in this Showtime series), Jackie is quintessential Jackie. In past shows, we saw Jackie acting as a medical Robin Hood, never hesitating to rob from the rich (those who bestow health insurance) Read More...

Enough Already! Nurses Are Not Sex Objects
March 11, 2010 2:12 PM by Gail Guterl
Does this sound familiar? A nurse bends over a patient's bed to help turn the patient and feels a hand on her buttock. She startles and whirls around, only to find the patient's son sheepishly removing his hand. Why should this healthcare provider, one Read More...

January 13, 2010 11:49 AM by Chuck Holt
Nursing’s ranking as the most trusted profession in America the past 8 years in Gallup’s annual Honesty & Ethics poll is testament to the reverence with which the public holds the caring profession. It’s a sentiment nurses return each day when they Read More...

In the sixth episode, which marks the halfway point for Nurse Jackie 's first season, the producers broach a heavy topic: Whether Jackie should help an old nursing friend die the way she wants to. The friend is Paula, and she was a nurse at All Saints Read More...

HIPAA be damned? Celebrity death fuels debate about privacy rules in healthcare
July 13, 2009 5:49 PM by Lyn A.E. McCafferty
If you think the fictional Nurse Jackie and HawthoRNe are bad for nursing’s image, just wait until you hear about one real-life nurse in California. Like many, I could not escape the media frenzy following Michael Jackson’s death. Internet, TV, newspapers, Read More...

Lost & Found: New Nurse on 'HawthoRNe'
July 8, 2009 2:18 PM by Adrianne OBrien
The July 7 episode of ‘HawthoRNe’ brought more examples of Christina Hawthorne, played by Jada Pinkett Smith, spending an unrealistic amount of time on direct patient care when compared to the average CNO. The fact that the show’s portrayal of an executive-level Read More...

'HawthoRNe:' Yielding
July 2, 2009 12:27 PM by Adrianne OBrien
Episode three of HawthoRNe (confession: I skipped episode two) brought some meatier storylines than the pilot episode, but also a continuation of the silly stuff and stereotypes. A bright spot continues to be Jada Pinkett Smith's performance. Her Christina Read More...

Hawthorne: Nursing Goes Hollywood
June 17, 2009 12:26 PM by Adrianne OBrien
I tuned in to TNT for the series premiere of Hawthorne last night and came away a little disappointed. Christina Hawthorne, played by Jada Pinkett Smith, is the CNO of the fictional Richmond Trinity Hospital. She's smart, tenacious and compassionate. Read More...

More Compassionate Than a Fifth Grader?
March 20, 2009 2:50 PM by Linda Jones
This is the nurse I want for all children, and even for myself. When I grow up I want to be a pediatric nurse because I love children. I'll comfort children in their time of pain. I'll also show up to work 15 - 20 minutes early to see every one of my Read More...

‘Shame’ Facebook?
March 20, 2009 11:48 AM by Abigail Scott
I'll confess: I'm a Facebook addict. About a year ago, I scoffed at the idea of a social networking. I had dallied with MySpace but didn't like it, so I abandoned my page. Then an old high school friend got me on to Facebook and I've been hooked ever Read More...
