hello, I like it, I just finished my LPN program while working as a nursing assistant at a local hospital, and they have been nothing but totally supportive of me and even gave me a graduation present from my boss and staff. I now have a full time job and everyone is pulling for me, so i have seen little gender bias but for a few patients now and then who would prefer a female, most of them younger women, the older ones adore me. I think it is about time more men come into this profession, people should realize that just because we are men doesnt mean we arent caring and compassionate. hooray.
