    I just had a really ****** night where I was mocked for going to school to be a nurse. I can't explain how frustrated and ******* ****** off I get when people mock me for my decision to be a nurse and make a positive difference in people's lives. I feel like so many people think nurses just put band aides on people's fingers. I hate this and just needed somewhere to vent, people are idiots, if there weren't nurses the healthcare system would collapse faster than a ******* popped balloon.
    please dont let that bother you in the least. I would suspect a little bit of jealousy perhaps on those who "mock" the profession. Gallup: Nurses again deemed 'most trusted' profession

    There honestly needs to be more make nurses ! And most women find it fantastically attractive
    Usually I leave semi long posts, but this one doesn't need one. I'll give you a short, simple piece of advice...****'em. Unless they want to pay your bills or do their choice of a "Mans" job and give you the check, It's none of their business what you decide to do with your life.

    And if what I said isn't enough, then just pay attention to fireballnursie's post, which I have conveniently included right hee yah

    My own brother mocks me for wanting to be a nurse, he thinks they just put band aides on fingers as well! I ignore him because I know that nurses carry a lot of responsibility and actually have the capability to SAVE lives. Don't let it get to you, it's your own opinion that counts.

    I'm a veteran (Cavalry Scout), so I have a built-in come-back: We broke things and killed people in the Army, I'm fixing things and saving lives now, got a problem with that?

    I feel for you mate I do, I am a male nurse and have come across a lot of sexism in both the work place and within society. There are so many ignorant people out there who have no understanding what we do and how hard it is to do it.

    Just remember that as a nurse you will be the reason a young man has another 50 years with his wife, or that the two year old child you treated can breath again. A person is called a Hero for saving a life, you save a Hundred and your a Nurse.

    We are the true heroes we get little pay, shouted at, slandered in the papers, work long shifts, deal with things that no person should have to deal with and we get up every day and do it with a smile.

    You and every other nurse on this site is an unsung hero, and when someone degrades you for it you can just smile back and know that what your doing makes a real difference.

    keep smiling !!

    Sorry about that! I've had that happened to me before too.

    I've found that certain people will always put others down no matter what (they tend to be the ignorant ones). I think the best way to deal with this type of people is to love what you do, do it really well, and show it. Your confidence in yourself and your successful career will make them look silly.

    The world is full of stupid people, the only opinion that matters is your own.

    Instead of taking a hit on your self-esteem, pick up your Kahunas and man up. Don't give them a chance to fit the typical ignorant "media nurse" for you, throw out the real "Nurse" at them and watch their reactions as you tell your stories.

    Or....you can just grow a mountain man beard. There's nothing manlier than a mountain man beard.

    Who cares what someone else thinks. I don't have anything to prove to anyone, including myself. I only care about how I appear in the eyes of my God, my wife, and my children.

    I usually am praised for wanting to go into nursing. I've had surgeons tell me that I am smarter than my pre-med colleagues for pursuing nursing and when I used to work in auto parts customers were always impressed as well. I can't recall being made fun of for wanting to go into nursing but if I did I'd laugh and say "It pays really well and I work with mostly women and besides I don't really care what you think"
