She performed her talent of nursing in purple scrubs and a white stethoscope later to be an internet sensation after comments about her "Doctor's Stethoscope" by the cast of the television show "The View" sparked the #NursesUnite campaign and Show Me Your Stethoscope site. Nurse Kelley was 2nd Runner-Up in the Miss America competition.
