Man Nurse

    I am a 24 year old male and I am interested in becoming a CNA, Is it that uncommon for men to be nurses and would I be able to find work?

    I'm in Texas, where there's plenty of male nurses and CNAs.

    There are plenty here in KY, too. You should have no problems finding a job, because you are male. In fact, it might be to your advantage if you you're physically strong. Lots of lifting in nursing.

    hey Man Nurse it is not uncommom any more the hospital i work use not have many men nurses except for Dr's because long time ago men thought it was _ _ _ to be a nurse ,i had lots of male friends who punked out because it just wasn't cool .. now as i said at my hospital we are seeing more men apply for jobsand on my med-surge floor we have 3 guys who started as cna's and are now rns so u can imagine 3 guys in a world of women ,they are the best so go on with your bad self the sky is the limit

    Ditto all that's been said. One of my best friends is a male nurse. There is also a male nurse who works on the med/surge floor that I currently work on. I have known many other male nurses and CNA's during my career. Go for it. =)

    Mannurse- I know a man who is a CNA at Central Baptist- works in the ER. A close friend's fiance also recently became a CNA. She doesn't see it as un-manley. I would think a guy would make a great CNA (esp. when it comes time to help lift a patient).

    There were at least 10 men at orientation for my nursing school. I would think it would be easy for a man to get a job in the field. Like someone said above, there is lots of lifting and such lol.
