Man NurseRegister Today!
- by RC2006 Oct 14, '08I 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?
- Oct 14, '08 by TheCommuterI'm in Texas, where there's plenty of male nurses and CNAs.
- Oct 15, '08 by BBFRNThere 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.

- Oct 16, '08 by NurseCardDitto 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. =)

- Oct 17, '08 by gabriella86There 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.
