    Hmmmmmmmmm just browsing the age group. So informative . Good Luck Gentlemen....you are going to need it.
    Your response couldn't have proved the drama the threader was referring to more perfectly!! Thanks a lot for your input!! From my experience I've found that men and women bring different expertise to the work environment and it benefit everyone just as it has in Law Enforcement.

    P -But it's the small disruptive men-eating minority like yourself that feed off creating drama and conflict that is the problem. And my guess is that you haven't analyzed yourself enough to know it's true!!!

    I - There is NO DOUBT in my mind that bringing more males into the nursing industry would drastically reduce this nonsense of men haters like yourself.

    E - ??? Waiting on the change in attitude and demographics!!

    It is always good to have a "mixture" , whether that is race or gender. The different inherent qualities from each culture(race) and gender, complements from what is lacking . Look at the mutt dog-----no in breeding, and more healthy and some even smarter than their pure breed counterparts.
    We need to get along w/ everybody, specially at work. some people carry some garbage----- so do not let their garbage be yours! Hang out w/ positive people as much as you can ---they have a lot to offer and teach you.
    or try to soar w/ the eagles, and forget the turkeys below ?

    i'd say ignore it, you will run through the same crap working in a hospital or any other clinical setting. basically forever, women have had to put up with what they think is stupid & petty in a largely male dominated workforce forever, so don't sweat up guys, just move on to what you need to get it done. i've done CNA work for almost 3 years now & can clearly see the " good ole girls network" everyday! that said, not all women in nursing are that way, in fact, most are wonderful. i've had more trouble with pompous CNAS, nurse managers, and clinical coordinators who won't give me any needed overtime, but give the gals all they want, than with female nurses. i've soo admired most of all the gal nurses i've worked with & think the feeling is mutual. move on guys, just cause most (not all!!) of the female nursing students are , well, flighty, does'nt mean you have to be. takes two to argue, i don't play , you don't have to either. let it go, do your work, be proud of your accomplishments & don't lie down with the dogs. there are plenty of smart , savvy, female nursing students, but i can admit most are'nt 21!!

    Talk about "drama" -- I see only a possibly critical reference in the post you quoted to age, not to gender. How on earth did you arrive at the conclusion that the poster is a "man-eater" and "man hater"?? Do you even know for sure that the other poster isn't male? Guess the "drama" isn't limited to just the females in the biz ...

    wow! this thread has me wondering a few things:

    #1. is there really such a thing as a 150 page study guide? or even a 15 page study guide? at what level in nursing do i get to look forward to this? we get a one-page exam outline and our text books..... which i guess may count as a 1500-page study guide?

    #2. i'm interested in knowing the different locations of some of the various posters in this thread. i see people ranging from zero study to 150-page study guides... and opinions on nursing ranging from mediocre to divine. in michigan, rn school is rarely scoffed at as an easy a endeavor. there are a couple of students, like myself, who try to make it look easy as we scurry in the darkness to make sure we're on top of things. i guess we just take the profession a little more seriously in my class? i can't imagine a student with such a 'ho hum' attitude. the instructors at my school would have them for lunch.

    #3. do they teach nurses in england how to write properly?


    uhoh, sounds like i'm buying in to the gossipy ****** nurse already.... i'll fit in nicely!

    If what you do in that personal life reflects poorly in any way on the nursing program, or causes it's reputation or credibility to be publicly harmed significantly, yes.

    This is actually the policy of most workplaces too, not just schools or nursing programs. If you want to go out and get drunk, or make bad decisions, just don't post them on MySpace, Facebook, or YouTube. IOW, keep your private life private - that's what I try to do......

    "They are attracted to the profession because they like the idea of people DEPENDING on them...at the same token they depend on their patients or wards to feel good ..."

    Truer words were never spoken. Not that this applies to the majority of nurses or even the majority of women in nursing. But there is a significant proportion that want to star in their own private soap opera and I try to steer clear of them. There's one poster on this thread (a woman, I believe) whose tag line is "The person claiming to despise drama has the biggest spoon in the pot." Amen to that.

    I should 'fess up': I, too, like having people depend on me, as long as I'm capable of delivering what they need. I don't think this quite counts as a pathology although it can slip into it. It does gives my life some significance to affect people's well-being in a material and immediate way, whether it's my wife, my kids or my patients. I'm just wired that way, so I might as well make a career out of it.

    Actually, one of the things I enjoy most about the environment is that female nurses tend to be kind of "men's women" - i.e. they stick to the facts and deal with the situation at hand. Plus they dig weird stuff, like interesting wounds, etc.; that type of gal-pal is a lot of fun to be around.

    <sigh> i think everyone is tired of the drama, i know i am, and i don't even have a penis
    but is your complaint about the drama, or the female reaction to it?
    and since i'm going to girl you with my girl talk, surely you must know your comment will just stir up a lot of *drama*?

    yes, med/surg nursing is a henfest, and "as above, so below," so is nursing school. unless you're going into the testosteroni departments, you will ever be up to your eyeballs in it, (which is why i am gunning hard for the OR). BUT -no matter where you work- the politics driving the unit you work on will, at the very least, be heavily influenced by a feminine mindset, since the majority of nurses are still women, and thus your company's policies toward the nursing staff as a whole will be colored by that. so if you can't take it now... consider your choices carefully. if the things that attract you to nursing don't outweigh this career-long drawback, you may be wasting your time.

    nursing school is very dramatic for me, but i have a lot riding on this, and i don't enjoy gambling. also, in my particular school, they are having a big problem with the whole program's organization and communication. no doubt it is related to staffing, which is related to funding, but it ****** people off when you find out expectations/requirements/schedules have changed, and without notice.

    however, if you want to avoid *drama*, IMO the biggest culprit is age. the squeal factor is very high for those under 30, OMG!

    Hey man I feel you on this one, just finished my first semster in nursing and let me tell you how stressful the people are in class. They stressed over every point they missed and when they finished there test they discussed it outside of class. All they thought about was there grades they didn't care about anything else. overall there were some cool people who can relate to me and would talk about other things than school that made things a little easier. nursing school is not that hard, if you put in the time and effort to study you will get the grade you deserve simple as that.
