How many of you married doctors? - page 14
Hi all! I'm currently a student at Johns Hopkins SON, just starting, and I'm wondering how hard it will be to meet and date some of the male med students here to seek out future husbands. Don't... Read More

Missy, the Professional Nurse is not the wife of the M.D.
If you want education at the doctoral level, please look into degree programs that grant the PhD in Nursing or the DNSc, rather than marrying someone with a professional degree.
DO NOT date anyone from that other discipline. You never know where they've been or who they've been with.
Besides, nurses shouldn't fraternize with subordinates.
Just my opinion, Edward, IL
Thumbs up, Edward!

Nurses shouldn't date subordinates.... love it!

Maybe in another 40 years' time the perceptions of nurses as being after docs, or not bright enough to be docs, will be such a thing of the past that we won't even deign to reply to the likes of the original insulting post here.
Stevierae I laughed and laughed at your "jerk" story though.

I'm currently a student at Johns Hopkins SON, just starting, and I'm wondering how hard it will be to meet and date some of the male med students here to seek out future husbands. Don't get me wrong, marrying a doctor is NOT the reason I want to be a nurse, it's just an added benefit. Let's face it, my nursing salary will not be enough to live in NYC, where I want to live, AND support a family.
So how many of you managed to score doctor husbands, and how'd you do it? Any suggestions on how I can meet some of them?

From what I can tell everyone seems to think that the person they are currently with is the "best" to be with and that is kinda nice in a world of divorce and separations.
Jul 6, '03Joined: Apr '02; Posts: 38,750; Likes: 16,271the thread may be a year old, but this issue seems to crop up again and again. so the comments come again and again. some of us feel REAL strongly about this gwenith,and wish to express it. I don't think that is so bad, esp for other aspiring doctors' wives who may visit now and again. i know i went to school with one of them....and she was Dangerous (yes with a capital "d").

But I digress. My first real boyfriend was a 3rd year med student. He was handsome, laid back, kind, wealthy and on top of that he was kicking ass in med school. He was #1 in his class, Junior AOA, and matched at a top notch residency. I loved him to death, but I found him annoyingly perfect. Being 17, I did not appreciate my man & ran around with boys closer to my age.
Anyway Greg gave me the House of God as a present & I was hooked by the portrayal of the sick humanity of medicine. I read the book over and over & swore that one day I'd be a doctor...
So I didn't marry the doctor (he's an optho in Long Island), but I did pursue a medical career, a career in nursing. Thanks Greg.

While I think that there are a lot of good points made in the posts, I also think it is unfair to say that if you marry a doctor he will cheat on you will a younger, more fresh counterpart, Well can't any man, or woman for that matter. What about love, surely anyone no matter their profession will hopefully meet their match and not have to worry about aging.
Ok just my two cents.

It is when and if the money runs out and they are still there with you that makes the man (woman).....Cash isn't a guarantee of anything.....

I actually knew someone in school who told me she was going to make her mission to marry a doctor...She did, eventually , and they are still married..She, however, is no longer a nurse, but that isn't what she really wanted to be in the first place.....Whatever, I say.....A goal is a goal, I suppose....
