Bernadette Peters' skills lie in hygiene - or so an aptitude test indicated when she was 16. What could she have done with that? she mused. Become a nurse? A dental hygienist, perhaps? But theater lovers everywhere owe Peters' mother a debt of gratitude for noticing her daughter's gift for entertaining and encouraging her to enter show business. "I think it was meant to be," the New York City-based performer said. "I used to sing and hum around the house too much to be anything else.

Students in yellow hospital gowns, blue booties, hair nets and face masks stood around the chilly operating room as nurse Denise ten Bosch took them through aC-sectionprocedure. She pulled them into the imagined surgery in the labor and delivery wing to play the mother, nurse and anesthesiologist. It started with giving the mother warm blankets before the operation, then giving her an epidural and ending with making sure no sponges were left inside her. She even gave the pretend father something do. "Put a hand on her forehead," the ever-smiling ten Bosch instructed.

Mathis Winkler The call came at 12:15 p.m. "Oh great," nurse Julie Dohrman thought on Jan. 9 when another nurse told her that someone from Western Medical Center in Santa Ana was on the line. "I'm getting a new patient and they haven't told me." Getting transfer requests wasn't unusual for Dohrman, who'd started working at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach last September. She looked for a piece of paper to write down some initial information on the patient and picked up the receiver.

Here are some items the board will consider tonight: BOARD GOVERNANCE RULES At the board's meeting on Aug. 22, trustee Tom Egan requested that the board review its rules regarding agenda construction and distribution. In particular, Egan questioned the rule that an item could not appear on an agenda unless at least three trustees approved it. Egan said the rule inhibited individual trustees' ability to speak for the constituents in their own areas. The board discussed Egan's concerns informally at a meeting last month, with several members disputing the idea that the rule restricted trustees' freedom.

Three and a half years ago, emergency room nurse CJ Hatfield arrived at Irvine Regional Hospital and Medical Center and knew it was where she wanted to settle. “It was absolutely the people that kept me here, 100%,” Hatfield said. Hatfield was a traveling nurse — a position that comes with a substantial pay increase where the nurse packs up and moves to hospitals in need every few months. When she arrived at Irvine Regional, she took the pay cut out of love for the staff she worked with.

Each morning since my August 2000 appointment as executive director of the Costa Mesa Senior Center, I find myself fortunate to serve in a bright, vibrant place filled with the chatter, laughter and surprises of active seniors enjoying their golden years. The center, one of Costa Mesa’s best treasures, is vital to our community. The nonprofit is governed by a caring and committed board of directors. We survive on corporate funding, grants and donations. But these days, funding sources are scarce.

This is one of those reports that is very uplifting ("Care catered to Asian Americans," Aug. 29). At first, it makes you feel proud of your fellow citizens. Just how far as citizens we will go to accommodate all cultures and traditions of the known world while paying little attention to our own. We print government documents in various languages for all those to exercise their rights as citizens or permanent residents. Major corporations have several languages you can choose to carry on business, as the common language is splintered into many parts.

One week ago, 30-year-old Lindsay Jaynes asked Delta Airlines a seemingly simple question: What is the company's on-board breastfeeding policy? The new mother planned to buy a ticket from John Wayne Airport to Florida with her now 6-week-old son in March. She wanted to be prepared for her baby's first trip and hoped to have a printed copy of the airline's policy when she boarded. To Jaynes' surprise, the response from a Delta representative would soon launch her into the media spotlight, transforming the Newport Beach resident into an advocate for breastfeeding mothers far beyond Orange County.

MTV has agreed to make changes to its controversial new reality series “Scrubbing In” after several nonprofit nursing organizations protested how the show depicts the profession. The remaining episodes will be edited to include more scenes that highlight nursing skills and the show has also been moved from 10 p.m. to midnight, where viewership will be decreased,  Variety reported. MTV will also consult with the nonprofit The Truth About Nurses regarding any future nurse-related programming and promote a Web feature called “Day in the Life of a Nurse.” The show, which debuted Oct. 24, follows nine nurses from different parts of the country as they immerse themselves in Orange County life.

When "Scrubbing In," MTV's new reality series about travel nurses, airs its first episode Thursday night, it will have a formidable act to follow in terms of media outrage and water-cooler gossip. In short, it will have to top its own trailer. All the general public has seen of the 10-episode series, which follows nine nurses from different parts of the country as they immerse themselves in Orange County life, is a short montage and a few clips on MTV.com. But those snippets have already ignited a war of words online, as some are lobbying to have the show taken off the air while others praise it as a noble effort to spotlight a heroic profession.

The characters in playwright Samuel D. Hunter's devastating drama "The Whale," now onstage at South Coast Repertory, are not the sort you might invite into your home for dinner or a chat. They're not even, with one exception, particularly likable. But as they expel their vitriol on one another in director Martin Benson's riveting production, they tend to grow on the audience - if only because their miserable lives make ours, however harsh, seem more palatable. And their performances are strong and dynamic, even though painfully negative.
