So I thought the male nurses would find this this entertaining. I'm working as a young male nurse in a Pediatric ER. I have a three patient assignment: possible septic baby, CHI baby, and an 11yo nonaggressive psych patient who believes he is a mythical creature from a book he has read and is awaiting transfer to psych. I do my work ups on my babies, including IV's and meds for both, and multiple scans for the CHI. When I re-check my 11yo, the parents are giggling with the kid. "What has you guys laughing so hard?", I ask. Dad answers, "This is just the first time that _____ has seen a male nurse. See _____? I told you he was a male nurse. They need male nurses to help lift heavy things and heavy people. His job is important because there aren't many male nurses." I think men in nursing is a really misunderstood role.
