    I think there have been areas that I have heard men have tended to gravitate toward (ER, ICU, Psych), but I don't think there are any areas that are "best" for men.

    On the other hand, a male OB nurse is pretty rare.

    The best place is the place you feel most comfortable. If that is elbow deep in placenta, then thats where it is. I feel most comfortable in ICU and ER simply because of the pace.

    It depends what you are looking for. I work in NICU. I was the only male in my unit until recently. Now I am one of 8. If you want to work with a lot of guys, yeah... ER/ICU is the place to be.

    However I'd suggest waiting to decide where you want to specialize until you get closer to graduation. My plans changed several times in school... I never thought I'd choose NICU.

    My advice... work where you want.

    PS. Girls are fun to work with, too....

    How many organizations have their own interfacility transport though? Gound is fine. Helicopter = no.
