    It has been a Western Adoption that RN's or "nurses" are Female with CAPS. I really wish this video was a more forthright explanation of Nursing in general. Men were Priests, Monks, Crusader men, Medics, Corpsman and performed Nursing Duties throughout History. America has adopted it as a feministic profession. Men are being welcomed with open arms in Western Practice but we still need to remember our origins in whole.

    Joshie, you are correct and I can understand the frustration that comes from being pigeonholed for your gender in a profession that has been marketed as "female" for what seems like forever. All nurses, despite gender definition, are celebrated this week. Great video and great point

    Terrific tribute. Would like to have seen more Murses represented even though the profession is only 6-10% male (depending on which survey is the reference). After all, the very first nurses were male!
