    Its a word - it does not change the quality of the care you provide. I am a male and I am a nurse, if you want to combine the two words I do not care - you are not degrading my ability or making me out to be less of a man - its a word get over it.

    I hate the term "nurse". "Nurse" is something a mother does with her breasts to an infant.

    I'd like to see a change to something more gender neutral sort of like "flight attendant" vs "stewardess".

    I dislike it too. In fact, I thought MURSE was a term for "male purse." As far as I am concerned, that is all MURSE will ever be.

    Murse is a first for me...........Im not offended, I actually got a good laugh when I saw that word but I guess it depends on who's calling me that and what mood I'm in...............guess I will have to wait and see. These days I dont care what they call me cause Im not looking for work unlike some of my buddies who made fun of me for going into the mursing profession 9yrs ago.......who's laughing now.

    I had never heard of this term before either....

    I have to admit, I laughed out loud as well when I read the topic. While I can appreciate that it may upset some, it is quite common these days to combine words/terms. A female nurse=Furse, or Wurse.

    I ABSOLUTELY HATE IT! I know some male nurses who use the term murse in a derogatory way just for kicks.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again- I would have no problem spitting on somebody that called me a "murse".

    Show me a little respect- my name is not "murse"... it's Turd.

    Every time I hear the word nurse it always translates in my head as "Man Purse". I know this sounds weird but images of European dudes carrying around their man purse flashes in my mind. So no, I dont like the term Murse. I would prefer to be called nurse, hell even referring to he as "that dude" works as well.

    Not bad ; CNA's would be certified Caregivers? Probably would take a while to catch on, but I'd go for it; it's gender neutral without being offensively PC .
