Iím confused. Donít TV producers know that for the last seven years nurses ranked number one in Gallup's annual Honesty and Ethics of Professions survey?
The two nurses they introduced to us this spring definitely donít fit the profile of top-notch professionals. Showtimeís Nurse Jackie and TNTís Hawthorne walk on the wrong side of the law or disregard ethics guidelines at least once an episode. Still, I hear many nurses and lots of other TV viewers really like these characters.
