- Mar 26, '07 by cowpoke_rnMy wife and I met in nursing school, dated 3 years, got jobs at the same hospital, got married, moved closer to work and bought a house. We work in different areas (she's in ER and I'm in PACU) and we both love our jobs. She went part-time, so our hours are very flexible and we can work basically the same days and have the same weekends off. Nursing has been a great career choice for both of us. We can talk/vent about our days at work, and we each have a total understanding of what the other is going through...and that's a great feeling. Good luck to all the nurse couples out there. I know I love it!
- Mar 29, '07 by chococroissantHavent had a chance to read through the whole thread yet guys.... but just to let you know, my husband just graduate from nursing school. I married him prior to him becoming a nurse (2nd career)... theres been so many positive things his new found knowledge has done to our relationship! and I definately spread the word to my girlfriends! Lol.
So more power to you guys! You've got something really special going on for you! Use it to your advantage!
- Mar 29, '07 by moscolee4I will be graduating Nursing school in 6weeks, i must say i am having a hard time with this issue not just because i am male but also i am 22.Last edit by moscolee4 on Mar 31, '07
- Apr 6, '07 by pinoyRN_23Quote from moscolee4its totally fine..nothing to worry about..i finished my BSN RN degree april last year and i was also 22.. im currently workin at long beach memorial medical center which is one of the best in the country but im getting the hang of it. i maybe the youngest RN in my unit but age is not a factor, its all about how much you know and how you can handle situations.. be assertive in giving delegations to LVN/CNA's eventhough theyre much older than you just so they would know whos the real boss..I will be graduating Nursing school in 6weeks, i must say i am having a hard time with this issue not just because i am male but also i am 22.
and i wish more women would take interest in us male nurses ..
- Jun 5, '07 by BarbiegirlnurseThis thread brings up a very important issue. Traditional views of nursing have tended to be very maternalistic. Males are entering the nursing profession in increasing numbers. Still, people have a hard time accepting that many men want to be nurses. My husband is also a nurse and he takes offense when people call him a "Male nurse". He says that people don't call women in the field a "Female nurse", so why should sex play a factor. While he was in school, his roommates teased him all of the time. They even nicknamed him "Focker" (referring to Ben Stiller's role as nurse in the movie "Meet the Parents" and "Meet the Fockers"). In the hospital setting, he constantly has to correct his patients, as they always refer to him as "Doctor".
He recently subscribed to the journal "Men in Nursing" and really likes it. It is great for any guys who are interested in getting the point of view of other men in the profession. Personally, I think that the increased number of males in the profession has been a great advance. We need intelligent, hard working individuals to become nurses, regardless of their sex!
- Jun 6, '07 by thetravellertoplacesWell i'm gotta say this topic has been helpful to me. I'm a 19 year old male nursing student and am not one that wants to spend my life alone. I take a sort of pride that i am getting into a mostly female occupation. For one I've always been the type that gets along with women well vs the "macho" stereotypical guys, which at this point I still around me all the time. Like JD (scrubs) I too am a Sensie. I'm the compassionate and sensitive sort and always have been, so it makes sense for me to go into nursing. I aspire to being a Pediatric Nurse, and then also being a traveling nurse to help those in need around the globe.
And like some of you said, it takes a real man to do a job like nursing. I couldn't agree more.
