Hey guys, I will soon be starting my 1st rotation in nursing school
. I want to mentally prepare myself for what is to come. I will be honest, I am a little concerned how I will be treated in the hospital by my female instructors. I'm not concerned about patient's refusing my care b/c im a male, i'm more concerned about the instructor since she will decide whether i pass or fail and whether i become a nurse or not. I don't want them to fail me just b/c i'm male. Also any specific rotations you faced discrimination? If so, what did you do about it? And how did it effect you? I know statistic wise, at least 10% of nurses are male, so i'm sure i'll encounter male nurses. I know that the nursing profession is trying to attract more males into the field but how can you really if you don't resolve the discrimination concerns? I think many of male friends would pursue this profession if the stereotypes weren't there, i too thought about this b4 applying but i didn't let it stop me from pursuing my dream to become an RN.
