The character of the unbalanced malicious nurse undercuts all the good things that nurses do.

The public needs to be educated on the true role of nurse and the expectations of the professional nurse. The image of Nurse Ratchet sets the public’s understanding back a hundred years, this negatively impacting healthcare.

This impacts negatively on the perceptions of nurses, something we are all striving to improve to protect future recruitment for high quality care

Nurse Ratch stero-type is continuing to hurt the true image of the nursing profession! Do you have a Nurse Ratch in your circle? Maybe he/she doesn't even realize it their behavior. It's up to each of us to confront unprofessional conduct in a positive way.

Nurses are the front line of healthcare and we never should be depicted as evil or untrustworthy! This is horrible and I will have to cancel my Netflix account if this is shown on the air!

Nurses are a vital, crucial part of our country's health care system. We are consistently rated as the most trusted profession in the US. We desperately need more people, of both genders, to become nursing as our population ages. This new series, Ratched, is another tired, negative portrayal of nursing. Please, can't you come up with a more positive portrayal of nursing?

Thanks for adding your voice.

I’ve been a nurse for over 30 years and the nurses shortage is real and we don’t need the media discrediting the profession
