Joy Behar of The View, however, must have found it funny. She made comments about Kelley’s outfit and her monologue live on the show.
The comedian was met with a backlash from nurses nationwide under the hastag NursesUnited. The nurses defended that they gave care to patients 24/7. They handle a patient from birth to the last phase of their lives.
They do it as their responsibility and as their duty their lives. The nurses said that Kelley represented all of them in that monologue and for Behar to mock that on a platform that had nationwide attention was really unfair.
Nikki Ferrell, former Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis' ex-girlfriend, took to social media to express her own disapproval of the comments made by The View co-host. She stated in her tweet to inform her if Behar issued an apology as she would be working. She is a nurse.
All of the backlash made Behar realize her mistake. She issued an apology on the show. She explained that she wasn’t paying attention. She said that she didn’t know that Kelley was a nurse. She was just going through the tapes and she thought that Kelley was just wearing a costume. She had no intention of hurting the feelings of the nurses.
Kelley expressed her own view on the Ellen DeGeneres show about her monologue. She said that being a nurse was who she really was. She said that the monologue represented her and the nurses of the world. The monologue was bigger than her. She wanted to create awareness and appreciation for nurses all over.

She was also interviewed by Ellen on all the wonderful things she had said about the host in the competition. Ellen helped the nurse by helping her score a Shutterfly award of additional $10,000 so she can attend graduate school.
