The Nursing Vision and the ENA discuss portrayal of nursing with makers of "ER"

November 21, 2001 -- Members of the Nursing Vision, three presidents from the Emergency Nurses Association and professors from Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing have a one-hour conference call with an "ER" producer and the show's medical advisor. The discussion centered on how "ER" could improve its portrayal of nursing, especially in view of the extent to which negative media portrayals of nurses affect the nursing shortage. The call was arranged in response to a letter the the Nursing Vision sent on October 10, 2001 (Emergency Nurses Day) to Executive Producer John Wells.
