Is it true that nurses have to be a certain height and weight? I heard people say that sometimes if employers see you are too small then they think that you're not capable of handling a nursing job because nursing do requires some physical work (like helping the patients who are much bigger than you). I'm quiet small (~5 feet 85 pounds) so is this something that I should be concern about when going into nursing? Or am I just worried too much?
Well I would love to hear any thoughts you have about this.

Maybe you're confusing nurses with flight attendants. Flight attendants do have height and weight requirements.
And just an aside FYI - way back in the day flight attendants (know as stewardess' back then) were required to also be nurses. I read that somewhere, but I can't remember where.
