Polling our male nurses: What area of nursing are you currently in right now?

  1. 0 Thought this would give us all a nice visual once folks place their vote.


    Currently, I am in Ortho-Neuro Med Surg.



    Also, I have placed a similar poll in our Male Nursing Student Forum. That poll can be viewed here:

    Good comparison threads when viewed together.

    Interesting poll. It's going to be interesting to see if my stereotype of male nurses perferring places like ER and ICU is true.

    I would eventually like to get into education

    Peds BMT, I am one of 5 in our area, about 10% of the nurses on our floor. Every day I am pleasently surprised at how many of my peers are also men.

    Havent we done this already?

    Anyway.... five years ICU-SICU (transplant-cardiac etc etc).

    I moonlight in a couple small ERs.

    Currently deployed.

    Would like to get into transport or flight. I dont think I could stomach the ICU anymore after this. Id like to go to EMT-P school for fun but I dont see how I could find the time-

    Went into the ED right out of school, sort of goes with the Army side. Hoping to continue with Critical Care or Or. Really found Med/Surg dull during school.

    Were you a Combat Medic in the AMEDD?

    BTW, if you found Med/Surg boring most likely will find the OR boring, too. I'd bet you'd like working in the ICU, or CCU.

    30% ER and ICU. While not a majority, still the largest two categories.
