- Feb 25, '12 by mindlorSick of the phrase "male nurse", why can't I just be a nurse, what does my gender have to do with it? I dont go to a female hair stylist or a female masseuse, and I dont see a female doctor.....I never consider their gender.....

Because relative to other medical fields we are the last genders to infiltrate a position dominated by a particular gender. The only way to change peoples minds is to bring credibility to our role. Make it clear next time you are asked to pull a patient up in bed that you can do it because you are trained too, not because you have more muscle.

- Mar 10, '12 by Good Morning, GilI'm not a guy, but I just wanted to see the male nurse poster! lol, that's the best I've seen yet, most accurate, too. Some of the elderly people say to the male nurse when he walks in for the first time during a shift: are you my doctor? lol. I've heard it a handful of times when I happen to be pulling a patient up in bed with a male nurse, but I'm sure you guys hear it 100 times a day lol
All nurses are awesome, male and female (well, the ones that are actually skilled and compassionate and are kind to each other lol).
- Mar 10, '12 by Good Morning, GilAnd, I agree with mindlor...we don't say female engineer or female pilot or male kindergarten teacher (in other professions that are also typically dominated by one gender). If I were a nurse and happened to be a guy, I'd probably be sick of the phrase "male nurse," too.
Just one benefit of being a guy and a nurse: is it easier for you guys to get nursing jobs? I know in teaching, it's easier for guys who are elementary ed teachers to get jobs (heard that from my teaching friends) since the schools like having a balance (since most el ed teachers are female), and I know it's much easier for a girl engineer to get an engineering job...
