    i would personally ask for a female nurse. having a hx of sexual abuse, i have never had a male doctor for OB/GYN stuff. i had a hard time picking the midwife group i went with because the only docs on staff are male and if something went wrong, i would have the doc. luckily nothing went wrong that required a doc.

    i know some women prefer male docs and think they might prefer a male nurse?

    as for male nurses in general, all the ones i have ever met were awesome. one of my best clinical experiences in nursing school was with a male nurse in ICU. he was so helpful and taught me a lot in that 12 hour shift. he made me feel confident and never made me feel dumb if i couldn't answer a question. wish all nurses were like he was. i think it is sad that male nurses/nursing students are treated differently sometimes. just because you are female doesn't mean you can be a good nurse.

    when i worked as a registration clerk in an ER for awhile during nursing school, i met some great male nurses as well. they were always respectful to me even though i was just the registration clerk and many of the female nurses were snotty to me.
    Hey Pepper,

    What MW group do you go to? I go to the one on 35th and Bethany. I was also glad not to have to use the male drs. I love the mw's there and still go for my regular, yearly checks.

    Sorry if I already asked you this. My mind is only able to process biology stuff at the moment.
