Nursing and the Media: A Call to Action - 5/10/2012
It is considered the most ethical and honest profession. Yet when the public conjures up the image of a nurse, it is usually outdated
and incorrect. At a time when America's nurses are assuming greater responsibilities in healthcare delivery and advocacy, it is time
to get the image right. This symposium will bring together media analysts, journalists and authors with national nursing leaders
to discuss how nurses are depicted "from journalistm to Hollywood" and what nurses need to do to actually influence all types of media.
An open forum provides attendees the opportunity to interact with the speakers and answer the question: Are nurses ready to step up
to the plate?
