(Newser) – If you've ever been admitted to the hospital and thought, "Man, these nurses really aren't as attractive as the ones on TV," apparently you should visit Sweden's Stockholm South General. In a recent job advertisement, that hospital recruited nurses who are "motivated," "professional," … and "TV-series hot." The nursing manager claims the hospital simply wanted to "stick out a bit with our advertising campaign" and get some attention—and the plan worked, the Local reports.

The hospital also explains that the ad's wording came directly from a satisfied patient, who was quoted in a newspaper praising the facility's "TV-series hot" and "Söder hipster" nurses. And, the nursing manager clarifies, "being good looking is no requirement at all. We put out an ad looking for interest and we got a great response. We want a nurse who is qualified and good at their job, regardless of looks."

And to be a bit more sexist...where are the hot docs? (Making the assumption that the " tv hot nurses" are female)....I want equal opportunities...but then I'd want to look my best...even while vomiting....
