Petitioning Executive Producers Grey's Anatomy

Introduce major nurse characters to do the nursing work (defibrillation, triage, 24/7 surveillance...)!

The global nursing shortage persists because of the gross underfunding of nursing clinical practice, education and research. Nursing is underfunded because it is undervalued. It is undervalued because of persuasive media depictions such as those in Grey's Anatomy that portray physicians doing the important work that real-life nurses do. Meanwhile the show's nurse characters barely exist or when they do, they are portrayed as worthy of contempt.
