    OB-Labor and Delivery Especially! We as guys need to break into this specialty!
    As a male agency nurse, I find that I'm more than likely to be cancelled if the unit i'm to work on has ANYTHING to do with OB. its quite strange. If not cancelled, its a whole other situation, where other nurses are pulled to accommodate me. hmm.....

    Great idea for a thread! I was a fifth grade teacher prior to entering nursing school, and entered nursing school with the clear intention on becoming a pediatric nurse. I volunteered in the ER at our local children's hospital prior to starting school, which affirmed this for me. A new twist in this is that, after recently completing my L&D rotation, I'm now considering the possibility of working in the NICU. I loved it!

    Nice to see so many men entering nursing, too.

    The poll was an eye opener; it seems we are all clustered in a few areas.


    Why can a woman feel comfortable having a male OB but not a male L&D nurse or a male midwife?

    I wasn't sure at all what I wanted until I went through Starting Point RN and had a session with the Life Coach they offered. I was preparing for the NCLEX (passed in 75 questions) but it was the Life and career Coaching that made this $150 program a great value. Now I know that I want to complete my MSN in Nurse-Midwifery and then my PhD in nursing education so I can teach OB nursing.

    My school offered this program but you can reach them directly at www.startingpointRN.com

    I graduate next month and I don't think I can get a job in a hospital because of a DWI. There goes my dream of ICU.

    Seriously? I would imagine that it wouldn't make that much of a difference, at least so long as it was just alcohol. All kinds of people have DWIs. Keep applying anyway, even if you have to take a position on a floor you don't really desire to work on forever. You're bound to end up encountering someone that doesn't think it's a deal breaker at one facility or another.

    Could we add CRNA to the vote? Also, for those who mentioned CRNA=Money, and further indicated that money was their primary source of motivation please thoroughly inform yourselves about what steps are needed to become a CRNA. Money alone, is terrible motivation for perusing your CRNA. Read the book Watchful Care.
