im a female but it seems to me that male nurses are respected more by physicians and sometimes families. i would say in some settings your female patients may feel slightly uncomfortale depending on what setting you work in. Since the profession is predominantly female you may often get irritated and not understand why all the women you work with are so "catty" and "petty." They will make a big deal about stuff that you will think is very stupid, but if you can deal with that I think nursing can be just as rewarding for males.
I think should be moved to the male nurses forum but I don't really get the question either. Are you implying that we can be "part male nurses" because your asking what are the pro's and con's of being an "all male nurse"? It seems like a very odd question to me, very odd indeed.
I agree, just have a prob with pointing out the obvious. con- finding scrubs. pro- being called dr. all the time, sorta. lol con- being the lifter for everything from pt's to tv's. pro- being the only "all male nurse" in my facility. hahaha.
