Hello all my fellow male CNAs. This thread is to talk about the differences being a male CNA than being a female CNA In hospitals and nursing homes today. Do you feel that as a Male CNA you are sometimes better respected and more trusted by your supervising Nurses? Are you sometimes still called an orderly by older folks and still seen by them as The orderly all dressed in white from the old days? Does your role in the facility kinda differ from that of regular CNAs, like using the male as the facility floater to help with lifting, and vitals, and combative residents, etc., or are you assigned a hall like a regular aide? Do you sometimes get "hit on" by older female residents/ patients unwantingly? Does your Charge Nurse always call you for assistance when there's a combative resident!! Do you constant get told by the older folks that "You must be in school to be a doctor huh?" 24/7 non stop over and over again no matter how many times you say no? What are your experiences as a Male Nurses Aide?
