On episode 256 of The Nurse Keith Show, Nurse Keith interviews Barbara Glickstein, RN, MPH, MS — a public health nurse, health reporter, and media strategist — regarding the woeful underrepresentation of nurses and the nursing profession in the media and how we must do better.
Barbara is the type of nurse who is comfortable pioneering new forefronts in nursing. She decided to create a documentary on nursing in the 1980s, which spurred her love of media, broadcasting and radio. She is a fierce advocate of nurses and allowing them to shine in the media. As Barbara says, the stories of nurses move us forward and elevate the profession. Journalists who use nurses as sources say their news pieces are better, more interesting and more comprehensive.
