Nurses slam ‘View’ hosts: The View Nurse
Published: September 17, 2015
Nurses slam ‘View’ hosts: The View Nurse, It was an unusual turn to your typical pageant: a Miss America contestant entered the stage wearing medical scrubs and a stethoscope, and told a slightly sad, yet inspiring and honest story about being a nurse.
Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson’s monologue during the talent portion of the contest touched many, some who work in the field, and others who have been given care by a nurse in times of crises.
But biting comments from hosts of The View, who mocked her monologue and wondered why she was wearing a stethoscope, have not gone over well.
Tweets by one of the talk show’s hosts during the pageant foreshadowed the storm that would follow:
Miss Colorado couldn’t even fake her way through a song. She basically memorized an e-mail.

On Monday while discussing the pageant, host Michelle Collins said Johnson “basically read her emails out loud and shockingly did not win.”
“Why does she have a doctor’s stethoscope on?” host Joy Behar asked.
The Internet quickly made its feelings clear:
hey @JoyVBehar -every day as a NICU nurse, the doctor comes in on rounds and BORROWS MY stethoscope. #nursesunite #mytalentisnursing

It’s very obvious the ladies on The View do NOT have the compassion, wisdom or respect for human dignity to be “just a nurse.” #nursesunite

When ur watching .@JoyVBehar attempt to talk politics, remember she didn’t understand why a nurse would have a stethoscope. #nursesunite
