It has been a Western Adoption that RN's or "nurses" are Female with CAPS. I really wish this video was a more forthright explanation of Nursing in general. Men were Priests, Monks, Crusader men, Medics, Corpsman and performed Nursing Duties throughout History. America has adopted it as a feminist profession. Men are being welcomed with open arms in Western Practice but we still need to remember our origins in whole.

Thank you so much! :nurse:

Joshie, you are correct and I can understand the frustration that comes from being pigeonholed for your gender in a profession that has been marketed as "female" for what seems like forever. All nurses, despite gender definition, are celebrated this week. Great video and great point ?
