#NursesUnite against 'The View'

(CNN) -- Nurses across social media are up in collective arms after comments made on "The View" about a Miss America contestant.

#NursesUnite became a trending topic following a discussion on the daytime talk show about Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson. Johnson, who is a nurse, performed a monologue about her job while dressed in scrubs.

"The View" co-host Michelle Collins discussed the performance on the show, saying that "there was a girl who wrote her own monologue and I was like 'Turn the volume up, this is going be amazing, let's listen.' She came out in a nurse's uniform and basically read her emails out loud and, shockingly, did not win."

"I swear to God it was hilarious," Collins said.

Co-host Joy Behar questioned, "Why does she have a doctor's stethoscope on?"

The chat didn't go over well for many people, some of whom complained about what they considered a lack of respect for their profession.

Behar also courted potential controversy with remarks about GOP presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina after her campaign ad was shown.

"She has the nerve to use the term women's suffrage when she's against Planned Parenthood and women's maternity leaves," Behar exclaimed. "She's against Obamacare. She uses the term women's suffrage? She should be ashamed of herself."

"It's not your face," Behar said, referencing Donald Trump's remark that Fiorina didn't have the face voters want to see as president. "It's your policy."
