  • Primetime Portrayals

    Most of us probably know by now that no less than three primetime shows are featuring nurses in primary roles.  After decades of St. Elsewhere, Quincy, House Calls and most recently ER and Grey's Anatomy; it's about time a healthcare drama was put forward with a nurse's point to view.  That should be reason enough for nurses to stand ...
