- Jul 2, '12 by lovedijahPersonally I don't care what my husband does as long as its legal and makes him happy. He's an airman, but if he wants to be a nurse, pre k teacher or whatever else, I'm fine with it. Women not dating male nurses? I guess everybody has a preference as crazy as it may seem.

- Jul 3, '12 by jimistradI'm a soon to be nurse who happens to be male. I'm days away from taking my NCLEX!! I thought I'd chime in.
Personally, I think it's really a shame that men in nursing have to justify it by being an ex-cop or military member, or being "fit." Despite men in nursing saying they are entirely comfortable with it, they still have this need to prove themselves as being masculine. This is why there are so many men in intensive care and ER. It's seen as a more appropriate setting for men to be nurses.
- Jul 3, '12 by super-rnTrust me. I am currently in a relationship with one of my coworkers. She is amazingly hot. I tell every guy I know that the best profession is nursing. You'll never find a better female to male ratio. Its the law of averages fellas. The math and all the eqautions are in our favor. Be more confident in yourself.

- Jul 4, '12 by mgp6I'm an RN and my bf is an RN too. My bf and I met each other at nursing school and started our relationship after our first semester. We had no problems since we totally understood each other's busy school schedule
Girls, nurses are awesome! If you're nurses too, imagine both of you only working for 3 days a week, you have plenty of time to have fun together!
- Jul 4, '12 by CBLNurse2BeI think most women find men in scrubs to be pretty hot.. Just saying. Most of my friends think so. Lol. There is nothing wrong with male nurses. We have a friend who has been a make nurse for years.. He is manly and hunts, camps, fishes etc. I have never thought any differently about him. He is also very nice and seems like a good nurse.
- Jul 4, '12 by JZ_RNI love a good male nurse coworkers as much as I do a good female nurse coworker. And although my SO is not a nurse, if he wanted to be, I'd support him, and then he would understand all my stories!
- Jul 4, '12 by rntraveler2012HaHa!! My husband and I are both nurses. He went through RN school right after I did and he definitely felt treated differently by instructors. One of his clinical instructors actually hated men in general nurses or not. But also Jobs and employers are more eager to hire male nurses than female nurses at least from what I have experienced in the last few years!!
BTW my husband affectionately calls himself a MURSE and I am the NURSE!! We have t-shirts too! LOL !
Quote from johny1I am a nursing student, currently studying to be an RN. I am really enjoying the experience, however I have an issue that is concerning me.
When chatting up women and the conversation comes up about what I do, and I reply studying nursing, their eyes widen and the mood seems to change. This is not related to women in the field but those outside. As soon as I utter the word nurse, I seem to go from a confident manly guy to a nice guy to them. I know women want confident manly sort of men, but women also say they like a man to be sensitive and caring. Canít a male nurse be sensitive and manly? Do these women see nurses as somewhat effeminate, at worst gay?
If a woman is able to climb the corporate ladder and make big money in business and still have sex appeal, does a man need to limit himself to traditional masculine roles to prove his maleness and be attractive to women or can he do a traditionally feminine job of helping and caring for people.
I understood that when women refer to equality, it is for both men and women. They itís a great idea for men to be nurses, but individually, their actions seem to speak louder than their words.
I would be very interested in your opinions on this both guys and girls
- Jul 6, '12 by CountyRatjohny1, I am a guy RN, and I understand what you are experiencing. My advice? Start hanging out with smarter, deeper women. Please do not flame me, ladies, that was not an insult to women. It was an insult to dumb, shallow people who happen to be females. All I am saying to johny1 is that if a woman is turned off because you are studying nursing, be grateful. You have just been saved from a bad experience with a woman of little depth. Start looking for a REAL woman, johny1; real women will not be squeamish at all about your career choice, in fact, some will even find you, mmmm, interesting.
Another guy RN posted the following within this forum a few years ago, and I enjoy sharing it. Let me know what you think:
"I once read that fighting for the defenseless was the highest calling of a man. A nurse fights on behalf of a patient who can't. When the patient is able, the nurse teaches them how to fight back. I'm not going to get into class warfare about doctors and nurses, but the nurse is the one who stands guard during the night shift and tells the enemy, `Not on MY watch, you don't!'
I am going to be a nurse because that's what a man does."
Cowboy up, bro. You'll find her.
