AIR DATE: August 10, 2009

Most of the problems with nurses - the idea that they are underpaid and not very smart as well as the looming shortage is caused by the negative media stereotypes. From ER to Gray's Anatomy, to reports from war zones, nurses are portrayed as irrelevant to modern medicine.
