    I guess I have a hard time understanding people who come into nursing not knowing they will deal with ALL kinds in their career. And that whole "sincerely held belief thing"???? They should stick it. Why be a nurse if you are going to have "sincerely held beliefs" that prevent you from sharing the load?

    NO ONE likes to deal with creepy, manipulative people. In the hospital, we shared the wealth and if they were there multiple days, multiple nurses cared for them. They are exhausting and distracting and everyone should share the load.

    No, you cannot refuse care because you can't stand the guy. There are going to be many patients you can't stand.
    There is no picking and choosing who you take care of.

    Okay thank you for your input. However, I didn't say he doesn't want me to do it. I said he is unsure. In a good marriage, you take your spouse's thoughts into consideration as well.

    When men get creepy I immediately redirect the conversation to their bowel movements. Removes all the sexy talk.

    Occasionally a special nurse comes along who thinks they shouldn't have any difficult patients ...but it's not fair that the other staff get more than their fair share of difficult patients so that the special nurse has none.

    One of the best nurses (that I know) for psych situations, combative patients, etc is a former prison guard in a mens prison. She decided that wasn't what she wanted to do for the rest of her working life so went to nursing school. She is fierce.

    One of my classmates became a NICU nurse. You should see him handling those tiny little babies. This is a big hulking man, who has the most gentle touch. And he is very good at what he does.

    My point: Every nurse, regardless of gender, brings something to the table. Gender shouldn't have anything to do with it. Skill should.
