about

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 highlights the 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
