I'm sure we've all heard the negative stereotype of "male nurses are just failed doctors", or something similar. It's pretty inaccurate as a blanket statement, of course - most male nurses I've ever talked to say they never wanted to be a doctor, they wanted to be a nurse. But is there any actual incidence of just that?
I.e., have any of you, or someone you know made an honest run at med school but then decided that it just wasn't for you?
Conversely, have any of you (while training to be a nurse or sometime after graduation) decided that maybe instead of a nurse, you may want to be a PA or MD?
