Specialty Poll for male nurses

  1. I always wondered where men wound up in nursing. I dont see that many in Oncology. I am assuming men generally like ICU, ER, and M/S.

    It would be nice if you would like to post your
    Specialty
    Years of EXP in current specialty(or post previous specialties)
    Why you picked your specialty.

    If you see that I am missing a big specialty dont hesitate to let me know.

    The problem is that what I work NOW isn't what I've always worked. Although I've worked mostly ED/ICU/and flight I've also worked Urology, Med surg/Hospice, clinic and even radiology.


    I've worked as a CNO and Clinical Educator also.

    On eof my best friends, who really was and looks like he was a linebacker in college works Peditrics.
