I am writing to protest the image of my profession portrayed in your Feb. 28 Outliers column (p. 52).
The cartoon character of the female dressed in white is offensive to my profession. This cartoon character, seated at a computer cockpit-design terminal, portrays a stereotypic image of nursing. I am disappointed by the public image of my profession presented by your publication.
Registered nurses are educated professionals who provide multifaceted services in the healthcare system.
I urge you to consider a more favorable image of the nursing profession in future issues.
