Accurate portrayal of Nurses in Hollywood??

Accurate portrayal of Nurses in Hollywood??

The bane of our professional existence (in my humble opinion). The very reason we spend a great deal of our time educating our patient’s and families on the details of the care we provide.

There’s what they see on the big screen… and what actually happens in real life.

sigh

…Sexy Nurses?

….Gay male Nurses?

Why does every medical-based Hollywood program have the Nurses sleeping with the Physicians???

Hollywood medicine makes it extremely difficult for REAL nurses to do their jobs… because the public thinks Hollywood is the real thing.

sigh

Does anyone know of a time Hollywood got it right?

OH, You’re not a REAL Nurse

OH, You’re not a REAL Nurse

A sensitive and real issue in the profession of Nursing. “If you don’t work at the bedside, you’re not a real Nurse”.

Grr.

Somehow this urban legend keeps resurfacing every so often.

Grr.

(Did I say Grr?!)

Just because a Nurse works in the non-clinical setting does not make them any less of a Nurse than the next.

Those two initials at the end of their name? Yeah, they earned them just like the Nurse working in the clinical setting.

Grr.

It’s time we start supporting one another, and stop breaking each other down. Speak up and defend each other when you hear this. Staying silent gives them permission.

I’m afraid of blood. Can I become a Nurse?

I’m afraid of blood. Can I become a Nurse?

What if you are afraid of the bodily fluids or other aspects of the job of a Nurse? Could you still become a Nurse?

I believe you can. I speak from personal experience.

In my pre-Nursing life I had a genuine vasovagal response to everything about vomit and dry-heaving. Yet here I am a Nurse Practitioner going into my 12th year as a Nurse. A former Trauma certified bedside Nurse and now Nurse Practitioner working in a Trauma ICU.

It can be done. You can overcome this fear or ‘freak out’ of bodily fluid.

Remember, not every Nurse works at the bedside. You can work as a Nurse and not be exposed to those “fluids” (or at least minimize the exposure).

Do you know anyone that overcame this type of fear? How did they do it?!
