As a new LPN graduate I constantly here "Congratulations, we need more male nurses." & "As a man most employers
will hire you on the spot!"..... But it has been my clinical experience that there was no one specific thing that could have been done better by a man than a woman. In fact I have been refused three times during my maternity rotation and was finally allowed to assess a woman who was post c-section, that happened to be a nursing instructor. (which was a better experience than the other students got but thats beside the point. Anyways, where is this big major need for more men in nursing? any ideas??

I am not pitting males versus females,,,, I am just searching for the rationale behind some of the comments I've recieved. please call the ACLU and cancel your complaint. TY
When you post a question in an open forum, be prepared for any answers. And quite honestly, there's been a load of gender-specific threads in recent days/weeks.
(BTW the ACLU line is busy
