Does becoming a male nurse mean that you have to change your friends also? - Page 3Register Today!
- May 20, '09 by exit96Never crossed my mind. My friends know that I "do whatever I want" and that I am secure in my masculinity. I play fast-pitch with them in the summer, play in a rock and roll band almost every weekend, spill beer with them etc....I think one of them joked once about 'doing a girl job" and we both laughed it off and had a drink and never missed a beat (am I sounding like an alcoholic here?...LOL). I am 46 years old so I am not sure we can apply the "era" test to this situation. I would suggest that your "friends" are the type of guys you see on "Deliverance" or maybe they have the ability to provoke and manipulate you...Carry on with your ambition to be a nurse, and those who "belong" among your circle of friends will be there!
- Dec 23, '10 by Dan2010Are you kidding me man?, RN is one of the hardest jobs in the world, you have to be smart, have tact, show compation, show hope, show confidence, show endurance, show encouragement and a thirst to stay alive and healthy. You can not even compare a rough (physical) trade job with the mental endurance that a Nurse have to have. They "wizards" and "witches" or "Jedis", to use a more positive term, of the medicine world. Soft? Tell them to try to keep it together in the face of death and you'll see them fall apart crying like babies. No, you don't need to keep as friends you'll past them behind and leave them in the dust. Go ahead, they probably don't have the stamina. Being a Nurse takes almost a "Super human stregth" to achieve.
