Male new grads and jobs.
- 0Mar 29, '11 by fullefect1For the new grad males out there, let me know how your hiring situation is?? How long did you wait? especially compared to your other classmates who were not males. I just sent out my first round of applications last night, and now I am going to see how long it takes, and of course try to make some phone calls and follow ups.
It would be interesting to know if giving the economy, being a minority/diversification really means anything.

But overall, I have heard good things about male nurses that a lot of places want males because in nursing there are so many females!!!! Just put in as many applications as you can.

There are probably some specialty areas (peds, OB) that males will have more trouble getting into, but I've noticed that male nurses are extremely welcome sights on Med Surg and ICU units.It would be interesting to know if giving the economy, being a minority/diversification really means anything.
I'm in the same boat as you, sending out applications now.
