I was just wondering, since male nurses are becoming more visible in the work force, how do they seem to working out as far as being co workers. Also what do see for the future men in nursing? What improvements can we as nurses make to help our fellow nurses? I really want to be a good nurse, but lately some fellow male rns are trying to discourge me telling me being an older male rn w kids can really test you. I really dont understand some of the reasons why (seem sort of petty to me). Any input would be appreciated. thanks-

welcome Bradley, dont let people discourage you if being a nurse is what you really want to be than go for it. In general male nurses are treated well other nurses work well with me and patients love me. As you can tell by my nick I am a male L&D nurse, getting my foot in the door in this area was hard but worth it. My coworkers have really come to like me, patients have treated me great. I became a nurses late in life and have loved every minute of it. If I can be of any help let me know. you can write me at mark_LD_RN@hotmail.com
