Popular television shows like Grey's Anatomy and House lead people
to think that nurses simply push gurneys and drive romantic plots.
Not so for the 12 million dedicated women and men working in the
very real, very demanding field of nursing. Written by the leaders
of The Truth About Nursing, Saving Lives
essential role nurses play in health care and offers concrete steps
to help nurses educate the public about their important profession.
"Saving Lives has a serious point, that the devaluation of
nursing... discourages students from the field and contributes to a
critical nursing shortage." - Newsweek
"A stunning expose of the media's inaccurate portrayals. It
should be mandatory reading for media creators, physicians, policy
makers, and the public." - Diana J. Mason, RN, PhD, FAAN,
Editor-in-Chief, American Journal of Nursing
