Calling Nurses To Exercise As Role Models For Their Patients

The role model is the fat one on the left.

Well, if they do, it will at least give them the bona fides to speak with their patients about it. (Though exercise is near-useless. Training has value.)
Nurses, just like many of their patients, struggle to find time and motivation to exercise. But a new study may give these all-important caregivers some additional pressure and responsibility: nurses' attitudes can influence whether their patients commit to a healthy lifestyle.

"Nurses should model healthy exercise behavior," said Joyce Fitzpatrick, an author of the study in the International Journal of Nursing Practice and the Elizabeth Brooks Ford Professor of Nursing at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University.

The study found, however, that nurses may not actually be good models for an active lifestyle.
But they won't.

Nurses will continue to be a usual and customary fat, out of shape population, like most others.
