Problem:
How nurses interact with the media

Nurses don't do enough media outreach.

Nurses are afraid to do media outrach.

Nurse researchers consider publication in health journal to be the end point of the research instead of publication in the lay media.

Nurses have been raised on stereotypes like everyone else and sometimes still believe them. See this Desmond Tutu clip.

Nurses aren't comfortable with public speaking.

Nurses aren't taught to argue, advocate or persuade — verbally or in writing — even though this is a vital part of nursing.

Nurses don't get practice learning how to write.

Nurses don't know how to argue.

The rare nurse advisors to Hollywood sell nursing out.

Solutions:

The Nurse Advocate Project
