Video: Empowering the nursing image

For one of her finals, Boise State University nursing student Kaylee Humphrey made a video about the way nurses are normally depicted in movies, TV and the media versus how they should be seen. This is a hot-button topic among nurses, and it’s awesome to see a student tackle it in such a smart way.

Throughout the video, she asks people on the street and in her life what they think about nurses–what they do, their purpose at a hospital and whether or not they like them–and intersperses the interviews with clips from popular movies and TV shows. She then ends with a powerful Johnson & Johnson ad that portrays the importance of the nursing profession.
