I think we're all due for this thread.
At the risk of encouraging a great deal of sexist comments, I would like to propose that we all share how special male nurses are. I would like to appologize in advance to anyone who resents being singled out.
To anyone who knows me, it's no secret that I am a fan of the male form. But I also have to say that I am a great fan of my male co-workers abilities. I have always felt that when you are working with a nurse, who happends to be a man -- you are dealing with someone who is truly serious about their craft. I think that it must have something to do with the fact that males face so much more opposition in the workforce and from society for their choice of nursing. Female nurses who probably aren't so well suited (temperament or ability-wise) for nursing are a dime a dozen. It is my theory, that because Men in nursing school
have to face so much flak and so many more challenges, the ones who make it have to truly want to do what their doing. This has got to make a superior nurse.
I invite you to share your views.

I agree; the men really get the short shrift when it comes to colleague support.
I've seen some excellent males in this profession, gentler than a lot of the women, and certainly kinder.
In nursing school
, there was one teacher who especially "had it in" for males. But we students made sure that he got the support and encouragement to get through.
Score one for nursing!
