The American Nurses Association (ANA) would like to thank all NursingWorld visitors for participating in its biweekly "Have Your Say" poll. The poll asked visitors if the new shows such as "Nurse Jackie" and " HawthoRNe" significantly hurt the profession.
According to the poll, 53% of the respondents agreed that the shows hurt the nursing profession while 47% responded that the shows have no impact. This was based on the 1026 total votes submitted online.
To participate in the new poll, go to the NursingWorld homepage and answer the new poll question under the section titled "HAVE YOUR SAY" at bottom of the left margin. A new poll will be posted on a biweekly basis, and results from the previous will be made available.
"Have your Say" polls are snapshots taken during a brief period of time that reflect the views of NursingWorld.org users who choose to share their opinions on a variety of issues. The polls are not designed or intended to reflect a statistically valid representation of the population and should not be used as such.
