    Yes, there are (e.g., management), however to get there you will have to make it through nursing school and most likely other areas of nursing that require total patient care.

    Pp have given you good advice - shadowing a nurse would be a good idea.

    Good luck!

    Dashing, someone already gave you the answer to this: THERE IS NO WAY AROUND IT BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH NURSING SCHOOL AND SOME PATIENT CARE TO GET INTO MANAGEMENT!!! Even if you went straight into a non-patient care job from school, you have to go through the same schooling as other nursing students, and that includes clinicals in hospitals doing patient care.

    You know guys, there must be a nurse management course that bypasses that whole "nursing" thing. I think I have worked for some!

    If you can't handle the gory parts, don't do it. The good comes with the bad. I don't think there's a nursing management course that would take you without some work experience, and frankly, I wouldn't want or have a lot of respect for a manager who have never been "in the trenches". From your questions, you are eigther really ignorant as to what the field involves, or just not cut out for it. Take the other responders suggestion and shadow a nurse for a shift (preferably on a med-surg unit or the like.) But, if you are that averse to dealing with the "yuckies" I don't know that I would want to work with you. It's something that you just have to deal with.

    I have a hard time believing that you are for real...IF you ever get in to nursing courses and do clinicals You will get the opportunity for "hands on training" and you will find out what to do with poop and pee.

    THANKS FOR UR REPLY. WHAT ABOUT THE RNS IN THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE . REMEMBER , THE NURSES WHOM A PATIENT SEE BEFORE MEETING A DOCTOR . I MEAN THOSE WHO TAKE UR WEIGHT, BLOOD PRESSURE, MEDICAL HISTORY AND THEN LET U WAIT FOR THE DOCTOR TO SEE U. ( I THINK THOSE NURSES DO A SIMPLE JOB THAN THOSE WHO WORK IN HOSPITAL WARDS IS IT? )

    I really can't tell what you are looking for. Your questions have an almost paraphiliac quality. If you are serious, I can only wonder what makes you interested in nursing at all.

    They a) usually have experience in a hospital first b)are medical assistants, and im unknowledgable about them or c) rare case of getting a job right out of school, but would never get out of school without HAVE TO CLEAN POO AND PEE!

    Your 2 years of clinicals is mostly bed bath- which means cleaning orafices and messes and all that good stuff.


    Like others said before, you reealllly need some research into this profession... or something is fishy...

    I have a suggestion... become a CNA. If you can't hack that, change your path. But if you can, then you will have a better understanding what the medical field is about.

    Many of those folks in the offices aren't nurses, they're MAs. And if they are RN's they went to school and in school, like all nurses, they probably had to clean a patient. Sorry to say, there's no way around it. We deal with caring for people and people poop, people pee, people vomit. It's gross, smelly, chunky, runny, hard, foamy, and all colors of the rainbow. But, it happens, we all do it. Again, if you can't deal with, don't go down that road. There are plenty of other professions that care form and help people (Social Work) who don't deal with it. If you're looking into it for the paycheck, that's the wrong reason and you won't make it with your issue.

    I repeat: There is no way around it!! The RN who works in an office takes the same boards as the RN who works in a hospital. In order to take said boards, that RN will have had to graduate from a nursing school. In order to graduate from nursing school, the student will have to attend and pass clinicals. Guess what? In clinicals you clean up poop and pee.

    I'm beginning to think this is a joke.......
