Hello everyone this debate was brought up and of course I had to share this with you. Some people think doctors and nurses should never date or marry and some people think it is the ideal thing what are your views?

My opinion only - dating a co-worker whether you are a secretary, an auto mechanic, a firefighter or a nurse, isn't the brightest thing to do. Leads to much disruption in the workplace.
I second that!!!!
However, if two people want to date/marry and they happen to be an MD and a nurse, then I say more power to ya. You can't help who you fall in love with!
There's no such thing as love, sigh....
Do whatever makes you happy.

I beg to differ about love.....I'm very much in love with my husband and we have a WONDERFUL marriage. Perhaps you just haven't found it yet???
I don't think that co-workers dating is a good idea...most times it just leads to trouble. But it is up to them. As long as it does not affect my work and I don't want to hear about it.
But if a Dr. & Nurse in general, meet and want to be together-who are we to say whether that is right or wrong?
As long as they are in different units. If they do date in the same unit, everything should be professional (like not holding hands in front on colleagues during working hours). The problem I say is that if they break up, it just create an uneasy feeling for everyone. Or worst, people take sides and there goes the team work.
I am of the firm belief ya don't poop where you eat. I live it. Married a jet engine mechanic/instructor. VERY HAPPY AND IN LOVE 16 years later after first date.
Well, since I AM dating and in love with a colleague I guess I can speak to this one....our policy is that you can't marry someone you may supervise. Since me and my SO are on the same team but don't supervise each other we are fine! We have also had several nurses get married to other nurses over the years, we lose one nurse in each(they have to transfer).
I have seen many people date/marry co-workers and i can count on the fingers of one hand the ones who made a success out of it....too often there is feeling of favortism on the part of the other workers....(this was in an office setting) ... in another case the md was married and the nurse was very much younger and the floor divided on aint love grand and the heartless homewrecker sides....but if you have two humans with a pulse you are going to run into situations which maybe a true love or just a memory in the making you can't make decisions for others...just make sure you aren't hurting anyone including yourself
