"Things are getting better but as we all know, TV has always had a diversity problem. I mean, can you believe they did 15 seasons of ER without one Filipino nurse? Have you been to a hospital," Che said.

Watch:

It was definitely a proud moment, having the efforts of our dear nurses recognized by celebrities abroad. And topping that is the overwhelming response by netizens--both local and international--who agreed and have nothing but praises for these modern-day heroes.
