i'm a male nursing student from seattle. i am 23 and have always been interested in medicine, how the body works, and helping people.
i know that nursing is a female dominated field but and even though there are only 3 guys total in my class of 36, i don't feel out of place. we all get along great and i haven't noticed any negative feelings either in clinical.
of course you're wondering about your ego. well, i first too was thinking about that and thought about being a medical assistant as it seems there are more men doing that. but then i realized that it was stupid to settle for less just because of nursing being mostly female. the rumors about male nurses being all gay is wrong. just like not all waitors are gay. if you're worried about having control over your practice, in nursing you can go on to advanced practice. in fact, more males are nurse anesthetists than females.
anyway, if you want more info, just contact me.
