Journalists ignore nurses
The Woodhull Revisited Study has found that:
Journalists use nurses as sources in only 2% of articles
Journalists seek out primarily physicians to commentary.
When journalists seek out nurses, public relations people give them physicians.
Editors expect journalists to use physicians as expert sources.
Journalists don't know how to find nurses.
The Journalist Project
aimed at connecting journalists with nurses by hosting rountables, doing media training for nurses and their institutions, developing a nurse expert database, educating public relations officials that nurses have much to offer and opening line of interest and engagement.
