Every week is nurses week
In New York Daily News supplement, Truth leaders discuss the image of nursing
May 6, 2019 – In this year’s Nurses Week advertising supplement, the New York Daily News ran a long piece by Truth About Nursing executive director Sandy Summers and senior advisor Harry Summers. We discussed our work over the years on nursing in the media, including media campaigns like those targeting messaging by MTV and Dr. Oz. And we offered ideas to improve the image of nursing, including our new Coalition for Better Understanding of Nursing, urging readers to join us to create a better tomorrow for nurses and their patients. In addition, Truth advisor and living legend Claire Fagin, RN, PhD has a piece in the supplement providing valuable insights on changing how people think about nursing, among them: “I always introduce myself as a nurse.” Fagin also endorses the Truth’s work. We thank the Daily News!
