- Feb 25 by twinmommy+2A fellow nurse where I work was asked in front of me by the wife of the patient he had been taking care of all morning:
Wife: Are you our Nurse?
Nurse: Yes Maam, do you need anything?
Wife: You're a Nurse?
Nurse: Yes Maam, I'm a Nurse?
Wife: You're a MALE NURSE?!
While I'm almost picking myself off the floor from laughing so hard, poor thing looks stunned, like he's about ready to go check himself to make sure he brought his junk with him.

Reply: Well I have been a nurse for 9 years but a male nurse for 3.
She said "ohh" then started laughing
- Feb 27 by blackvans1234I'm a CNA and a nursing student.
I was working as a CNA in the ER at my hospital, and the emt's brought a patient in, and started giving me report on the patient, the Medic informed him I was the CNA and not the RN.
SO I DO LOOK LIKE THE (male) NURSE TYPE!

I can't tell you how many times some residents will ask the CNA to send "the doctor" in to give them pain pills. Or ask me to send "the nurse" in to change their briefs.

Anyone else ever heard of that?
