Do female nurses respect male nurses...honesty, please?... Read More


  1. 1
    I have seen and worked with many male nurses during clinicals and i realized that I get more help from male nurses than females. Male nurses know the pathophysiology and they are so good at making things easier to understand. Male nurses know their patients well. I know that not all male nurses are smart and not all female are terrible at teaching, but I am only speaking from experience. I get so annoyed when nurses pass meds and follow procedures just bc the dr said so, without knowing how it works, what it does, why is this pt getting it etc. Why this antibiotic and not the others .....

    I honestly think that the male nurses I've worked with in the ER are respected more, questioned less vs females.

    Thank you all, for the much respected replies! Nursing struck me as a career choice, mainly because I LOVE science, very hands-on, and I LOVE helping people. I've read somewhere (and I firmly believe it), that RN's save more lives than MD's; this is mainly due to their attentiveness and overall thorough care of the patient. I have been around enough doctors (in hospital/private sector to make a non-biased statement) that through observing doctors' personalities and behaviors with patients...this article is far from fictional. RN's are some SERIOUS heroes.

    On another note... For the most part, men in 'general population' talk a whole lot of s@$%. They immediately assume that I am gay, when that couldn't be further from the truth My best friend inspired me to pursue this career. He is entering a CRNA program, which I plan on eventually attending as well. Thank you all, for your feedback. Each and everyone of you are AWESOME! You RN's ROCK!!!!!!

I have also dated an MD (maybe should've left that part out) RN's are some SERIOUS heroes.

    I've always had it in the back of my mind to become a CRNA. I like gidgets and gadgets and widgets and knobs, and tweaking things to see what happens.

    Here's a "riddle" (old one):

    a man is driving his son to school. they get into an accident and the man dies. the son is rushed to the hospital and when he arrives for emergency surgery the surgeon says "I cant operate on this boy, he's my son."
    Whoever wrote the movie, "Tin Cup" will never know how many teachable moments he ruined!
