    Actually, this has been such a non-issue for me, I'm shocked when the "you're a MALE nurse??" type questions come up. Funny post, though.

    I'm a female pre nursing student and I think it's so dumb of anyone to ask a man why is he a nurse? As a PCA I would see my male nursing employees being asked that. I would just look at the patient like you really just asked that stupid question? Idiot!!

    Guys keep up the good work. A nurse can be male or female in my book. :kiss

    Well, I tried out for the female nurse slot but I didn't pass the physical.
