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).
