Scrubbing In: It's Changing!

Scrubbing In seemed to rub people the wrong way...and I don't blame those who were upset by it. It painted a very negative picture of some very amazing people - nurses. And MTV, while they do lots of controversial stuff and stick by it, decided to make things a little more right and change the show.

Website The Truth About Nursing, and other organizations, showed their concern about the show, and fortunately, their words worked. Per the website:

After these collective efforts, MTV reached out to The Truth About Nursing to engage in extensive discussions about how to ameliorate the situation. MTV has agreed to take several helpful steps, including airing the show at a less prominent time, some re-editing of episodes, and other efforts to convey accurate information about nursing, although the last six episodes will air.

This is awesome! By no means did I expect MTV to pull the show off the air (they paid to film it, after all), but I was hoping that they'd show some positive aspects about nursing professionals, rather than just portraying party-filled lifestyles.

This is great news! Hopefully the show will play out and that'll be the last we hear of it.
