Attention offended nurses: You took ‘The View’ jokes out of context, co-hosts say.

On Monday, the women of the ABC daytime show were discussing Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson, who performed a monologue and discussed her profession as a nurse in the talent portion of Sunday’s Miss America pageant, E! The View co-hosts Joy Behar and Michelle Collins have addressed the controversy that erupted Monday when their comments regarding Kelley Johnson’s Miss America monologue about being a nurse went viral. “We love nurses.

Host Michelle Collins also remarked: “She basically read her emails out loud and surprisingly did not win.” She then jabbed, “She (Johnson) treats patients with Alzheimer’s, which is not funny, but you have to Google it (her performance).” “The View trivialized the profession of nursing, referring to the nurses scrubs as a costume. They also demeaned the role of the RN by referring to a stethoscope as a doctor’s instrument,” a rep for the National Nurses United, the largest U.S. Behar, a blogger who goes by the name Kateri, and who is also a registered nurse, said the comment is “an insult grounded in ignorance.” “A woman in a beauty pageant put on baggy clothes and walked on stage to talk about her job, and all that a woman who is paid to sit at a table and gab could come up with was insults,” Kateri wrote. “That wasn’t a sad moment for nurses. They have a large and dynamic scope of practice necessitating education in biological and social sciences, critical thinking and health assessment skilled.

Nurses don’t get recognized for what they do,” O’Really said. “‘The View’ hosts are trapped in their own little world, and forget about the rest of us hard working individuals.” “The hashtag campaign is a waste of nurses’ valuable time,” she said. “The hosts blabbered on without doing their homework about nurses. We were talking about the talent competition, and it got misconstrued. “By the way, if your bosses are watching, you all deserve raises,” Collins added. “This is how much I love nurses.

I didn’t know what the hell I was talking about.” Behar continued that her niece is a nurse (“So, I mean, I know they use stethoscopes.”), and Collins went on about how the nurses that took care of her when she had rabies were sooo funny and nice, until moderator Whoopi Goldberg had enough of the groveling and said gently, “I think they get it.” Still, Goldberg added that people should listen more carefully to make sure something is actually an insult before they get upset: “You just have to listen.
