- Sep 14, '11 by Sacred eagleI am in nursing school,go for it. Tons of opportunities.
- Nov 4, '11 by NurseAaronRNBeing a nurse is all I ever wanted to be. My first job was as a CNA, then military, then management, then administrative, then computer stuff, then school and finally my RN. If you really want to be one, you'll know it in your heart.
- Nov 10, '11 by MrChicagoRNWhen I entered nursing school back in the 80's, I had some naysayers, jokes about wearing a dress, etc.
My sister offering to have her brother get me a job at the factory he was at.
A factory now closed for 15 or 20 years, with a shopping center on it's site.
Meanwhile, I've been unemployed for <1% of my career, am financially stable, and have a debt free masters degree.

- Nov 17, '11 by Pacs, RNI once read an article called "Real men wear pink"
It was how men are starting to enter professions which are traditionally viewed as a woman's job in the same way that women are now entering professions which are traditionally viewed as a man's job.
Times are changing. Cooking is traditionally viewed as a woman's job but then again, "The best chefs in the world are men".
The same goes for nursing. If we do our job, we do it good. That is what matters. Real men are not defined by their jobs. But rather, it's the real men who define their jobs as masculine or not.
In any case, nursing is a great profession whether you be a male or a female.
