Hollywood and the Nursing Industry

Perception is reality, and Hollywood knows this like no other. Entertainment consumers, if they don’t run into real life situations where they interact with certain types of professionals, will default on the Hollywood version. This can be particularly true with healthcare professionals – just consider the case with nursing. How often have you, personally, dealt with a nurse? Perhaps when you were in a hospital, or maybe when a family member or friend was in there. That does not account for a whole lot of time, and your personal experience probably is not a great indicator of the industry as a whole. But how much time have you spent watching nurses on TV or in movies? There’s the ticket to your beliefs!

TV nurses


If there are injuries that need to be healed on the movies, there are doctors and there are nurses. Watch any war movie, and find the stereotypes. They can go from the cold, clinical and stern perspective, to the full-blooded, full-bodied, white mini-skirt and tilted cap variety. These stereotypes can either make you want to be a nurse, want to be treated by a nurse, or want to never see one for the rest of your life! They are plot structures, as opposed to reality.


Television nurses are given a bit more leeway and time to develop, so they can give a more accurate and deep reflection of the character of the nurse, but the actions of the nurses themselves may be biased toward comedy, romance, or drama, which, once again, is going to skew your overall vision of what the profession means. Whereas there will be a lot of accurate information about technology and processes, there is always going to be a tendency toward movement and action rather than detail and depth about the field itself.

Potential Effects

Nursing has gone through many stages regarding gender acceptance and equality. Historically and culturally, there have been times when only men or only women were allowed to be nurses, and the reasons for those periods were sometimes logical, sometimes political, sometimes, geographical, and sometimes religious. There has never really been a time where the genders have been on equal footing though, in terms of opportunity and pay scale. Hollywood does not necessarily help this by maintaining stereotypes in it’s programming.

For your part as a viewer, it’s important to approach any professional from a rational viewpoint, especially if you are considering it for a career. Eliminate the glamour and inequality from the Hollywood version of nursing, and you’ll have a better opportunity to see it for what it is. Find someone in the field who is willing to talk to you about day-to-day operations, and look past the plot structures of the characters on the screen.

‘Sister Wives’ Star Meri Brown Breaks Down In Tears Over Divorce From Kody: ‘It’s An End’

Meri Brown has insisted that her divorce from husband Kody is simply a matter of logistics. But in the family’s tell-all special, she broke down in tears over his marriage to Robyn, and the end of their relationship as they know it.
“It’s an end of something that we had had, in a way, for 24-and-a-half years,” a teary eyed Meri explained. “But at the same time, I know it’s not, because I have eternity with him; I have eternity with the family. I know it’s not the end.”

Bjork Follows Taylor Swift’s Lead & Won’t Put Her Music On Spotify Because It’s ‘Insane’

We’ve got another anti-Spotify artist on our hands!

Taylor Swift has been open and honest about why she doesn’t want her music on the streaming site, and now Bjork is singing the same tune for her new album Vulnicura.

The 49-year-old singer recently did an interview where she explained why she made this choice, saying:

“We’re all making it up as it goes, to be honest. I would like to say there’s some master plan going on [with the album release], but there isn’t. But a few months ago I emailed my manager and said, “Guess what? This streaming thing just does not feel right. I don’t know why, but it just seems insane.””

Why is it insane?
“To work on something for two or three years and then just, Oh, here it is for free. It’s not about the money; it’s about respect, you know? Respect for the craft and the amount of work you put into it. But maybe Netflix is a good model. You go first to the cinema and after a while it will come on ­Netflix. Maybe that’s the way to go with streaming. It’s first physical and then maybe you can stream it later.”

So, at least there’s a chance Bjork will come around, right?!

Are you planning on buying her entire album???

Real-life Notebook Couple Die Holding Hands

This is just so sad, yet touching.

Floyd and Violet Hartwig spent 67 years married to one another.

So it only seemed right that the spent their final moments together.

Violet had been suffering dementia for several years when doctors told Floyd even more bad news: he had kidney failure and only two weeks to live.

Their daughter Donna Scharton put her parents in hospice together. Despite his deteriorating condition, Floyd still made Violet his priority. But eventually, his body gave out. Scharton emotionally explained:

“We could tell my dad was in a lot more pain. We said ‘it’s getting close,’ so we pushed the hospital beds together as far as we could. We put their hands together, and my dad died holding my mom’s hand. Mom was not coherent, but we told her that dad had passed away and that he was waiting for her. She died five hours later.”

The Hartwigs died on February 11th hand-in-hand, just as they had been when they got married in 1947. A similar scene played out in the 2004 tearjerker, The Notebook.

We hope these lifelong loves are in a better place together.
