[font="verdana"]sometimes i get the vibe that the staff inthe hospital don't like us guys around, someone comes through like this. it'sgood to know that there are people out there that appreciate what you do.
I couldn't agree more. Male nurses are truly a God send and I am so thankful for their companionship, professionalism, and hard work that really helps balance out the unit and provide excellent quality care to patients. Could not be more appreciative of the fact that despite all the women in the field (some of them who are not so encouraging!), they still chose to practice as nurses. Thank you!
I love male nurses on the unit. They bring something extra to the profession and break up some of the estrogen going on! I did not realize that I would be working with so many women, male nurses are a welcome change!
I think the refreshing part about having male nurses is that you guys tend to stay away from the drama and gossip that us women tend to get caught up in. I have also noticed that some (not all) men tend to be a little more patient and have a gentler bedside manner. My sons NICU nurse was male and was the BEST nurse he had!!
I just want to throw out there that the best nurses I have had as a patient have been male nurses. Don't be discouraged!!
Thanks a lot. There's not much being said about male nurses out there and the typical stereotypes are a bit overwhelming to ignore sometimes. This gives me something positive to look forward too as I persue my goals.
