“I really do care a lot and it was just so much fun to perform that and see it trend on Twitter and Facebook, especially being able to bring all those nurses together and have everybody standing up for our profession and giving them the voice that they deserve,” shared Johnson. “They work so hard and they are lifesavers and that was all the message I wanted to give. It’s about them, not about me.”

Johnson’s next stop is on the runway at the Be Beautiful Be Yourself Fashion Show on October 24. Join her in supporting life-changing research at the Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome and lifesaving medical care at the Anna and John J. Sie Center for Down Syndrome

Watch her on Ellen: Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her Miss America monologue about being a nurse, which went viral.

“A lot of people told me not to do a monologue for talent, it’s very unique. But, I am a nurse and that’s my talent is taking care of people and caring about other people,” Johnson told Ellen. “I wanted to give the nurses that don’t have that voice, that voice and recognition of somebody going up there and just being a little bit different and unique.”
