Changing how the world thinks about nursing

Join our Facebook group

Create nurse-friendly art, television, films, books, radio programs, web sites, video games, toys, dolls, Halloween costumes...
 

Are you creative? We encourage you to create art that promotes better public understanding of nursing. Somewhere down the road, we plan to be able to facilitate your efforts.

Here are some ideas about nurse-friendly art that may help:

  • Television shows
  • Movies (features, shorts, documentaries, animated)
  • Novels
  • Non-fiction books
  • Plays
  • Poems
  • Short stories
  • Web sites
  • Radio programs
  • Paintings
  • Comics
  • Cartoons
  • Children's interactive CD's (like "Rescue Heroes" for nurses)
  • Children's books
  • Children's videos
  • Coloring books
  • Halloween costumes
  • Dolls
  • Action figures
  • Toys--"nurse kits"
  • Board games (like "Operation")
  • Porcelain figurines for the mantle
  • Statues
  • Others?

Creating something to show off nursing? Please try to show nurses' ability to make astute assessments and bold and courageous interventions that save lives. Please see the British Columbia Nurses' Union advertisement for an example of how to show that nurses save lives through their decision-making instead of depicting them carrying out a series of monkey tasks.
