What's being a male nurse like? Is there lots of disrespect?
Every now and then you run into a "nursing is a female profession" ball-buster, but, thankfully, they are few and far between. Most (male) doctors appreciate them/us, and most of the women appreciate the physical strength/presence male nurses represent.
At least this is what I have seen.
And as far as I can tell, old ladies LOVE us. Generally, I think elderly people like and, in many cases, prefer being cared for by men. I think they feel safer, especially those who've had falls.
