Rewind… Global Nurses? Yes, It’s Necessary

Play

We mentioned a few weeks ago that we attended the National Nurses United Conference here in San Francisco. We met nurses from most of the states and from over 13 other countries. It’s very interesting to talk to nurses from around the world because even though the healthcare systems are different than ours in the U.S. (most we talked to have a form of universal healthcare), the problems and challenges are the same. RN and Co-President of National Nurses United, Deborah Burger shares the global vision.

In 1947, R.J. Reynolds commissioned a survey among more than 100,000 doctors, asking the key question, “What cigarette do YOU smoke, Doctor?” However, BEFORE the survey was sent out, all of those doctors received free samples of Camel cigarettes. Naturally, when the survey was taken, most of those doctors gave the answer Reynolds was expecting. In their radio and magazine advertising, their slogan was, “According to a nationwide survey, more doctors smoked CAMELS, than any other cigarette.”
