Well, it seems like 2009 is the year for nurse-centric television. Coming this fall to NBC is ‘Mercy‘ another drama surrounding the lives of modern day nurses with the lead nurse character being outspoken and taking part in unorthodox activities while on the clock. Oh no, say it ain’t so! Nurses taking part in questionable activities? How original, but I’ll let you be the judge. Maybe there are some redeeming qualities that you care for. We’ve already had mixed reviews regarding the other 2 new shows, ‘Nurse Jackie’ and ‘Hawthorne’ due to content and questionable activities. Will ‘Mercy’ prove to be different, original? At least now you’ll have a few shows that can entertain you while you’re off from your travel nursing assignment, could be a good laugh?
Below are some preview clips as well as other tid bits. Enjoy and please tell me what you think, I’d love to hear it!
Patrick Fuerstenau here.
Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here.
I've been involved with Marketing and Advertising for over a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she's ever had... So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. So here I am at Medical Solutions and am going on my 3rd year as a Marketing Specialist for a great travel nursing company. This by far has been a major blessing in my life. I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time... As long as they'll have me.
Now that we've got the career timeline out of the way... Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I've been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn't at least kick the ball around, I don't know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts... Music, Visual arts, Film, Design... pretty much anything and everything arty. I'm happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager!
And I love writing about travel nursing.
