    There will always be small minded people. It tells you about their character..not yours.
    CARING...has no gender. Also, we have a degree in Science not in "being a lady."

    Should that small minded person become my patient, he/she will see me first hand
    apply my evidence based science degree in order to care for them and keep them alive!!
    They might find a new appreciation for men in nursing, or they might remain small minded.
    Again, it shows their character.

    The truth is...some jobs are either physically draining or mentally draining. Nursing is physically,
    mentally, and emotionally draining. Only the strong survive and work as nurses!!!!

    Oh man, dude get used to it. I've been asked if I was gay because I do nursing, I've been laughed at for it. I've been told I'm brave for going into a female-dominated field and defying stereotypes, which I think is equally ridiculous. I think most guys who become nurses tend not to think about what other people think about it. I think you should inherit the same mindset. Follow what makes you happy man, people are going to criticize your life no matter what, you might as well enjoy it.
