Make amends by creating a more positive depiction of nursing on Sleepy Hollow

The Truth About Nursing started this petition to Fox Entertainment President David Madden and

Sleepy Hollow featured a powerful example of the angel-of-death image of nursing: The being who was coercing patients to commit suicide at a psychiatric hospital turned out to be the demonic ghost of a real nurse who had been executed for having caused the deaths of 21 patients. This kind of one-dimensional portrayal, with no real context or counterexamples, reinforces both the angel and battle-axe stereotypes of nursing. That makes it harder for real nurses to get the respect and resources they need to save patients.
