Don't mess with nurses. Who do you thinks takes care of you when you're sick, injured, or old? It's thankless and backbreaking work, requires a caring personality, is well-known for burnout because it's a very difficult 'helping profession', requires a great deal of knowledge and skill, and they should be applauded, not mocked. As someone who has had at least three nurses in the family, I'm appalled.

‘The View’ loses two national advertisers after mocking nurses
Two major national advertisers pulled out of ABC’s “The View” Thursday amid fallout over a poorly received jibe about nurses on the daytime talk show earlier this week.

The announcement by Johnson & Johnson and Eggland’s Best stems from the on-camera mockery of Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson’s nursing-themed monologue and attire during Sunday’s Miss America pageant.

Johnson, who completed her nursing degree in April, had appeared on stage in a purple nurse’s scrub and stethoscope to deliver an emotional monologue about her chosen profession.
