Male vs. Female Nurses

    Does anyone have any particular opinions on whether a male or female does a better job of nursing? If so, what makes the difference, either way.

    Get over it!! There is no difference. Most males are good and most females are good. There are a few of each that are bad. Sex makes no difference in what a nurse brings to the bedside.

    Then why does it seem that males are quicker to get into programs and to get hired? No offense, please don't flame...

    I am elated to see more men entering the field of nursing. I see it as an opportunity for salary increases. Unfortunately, our society has a long way to go in equality. Curiously enough, men are still seen as the primary breadwinners and women work to suppliment the family income...when men enter the profession in greater numbers...respect, benefits, and salaries will most likely increase. I did not say I like it, just my opinion based on my life experience.

    I cannot fathom why GENDER should make a difference. I see good and not-so-good nurses all over. Male, female, who cares? As long as that person is compassionate, caring and also COMPETENT; that is the nurse I want at MY side in my work situation. I agree w/the above poster: GET OVER IT!

    if I am sick, just give me someone that divulges their attention to me, the patient.............with their skill, expertise, and knowledge.................gender truly makes no difference here.............

    I didn't work with men. I didn't work with women. I worked with NURSES.

    Gender doesn't make one bit of a difference. There are good male nurses and bad male nurses just as there are good female nurses and bad female nurses.
