I plan on entering nursing school
when I retire from the Air Force in about a year. I have been checking this board for the past couple months, and when I saw a male nurse forum I had to stop lurking and say hi.
Now, here are my two burning questions that I have been carrying around since I first decided to become a nurse.:
1. First question is kind of funny. A guy I work with told me that nursing students practice on each other. Injections would be bad, but I can take it. Bed Baths would be like that nightmare I used to have in high school where I show up in my underwear and everyone laughs. I don't have to get naked in front of the other students do I?
2. Second question is not so funny. I know a male doctor sometimes has to have a female nurse in the room with him when he sees a naked female patient. Does a male nurse need a female escort to see a female patient? If so, then that's a real pain in the *** for the female coworkers. If not, then that's an invitation to a lawsuit sooner or later, isn't it?
