( sorry the heading ment to say CANT do not CAN do) Hello, this is my first post so ill introduce myself. Im a 25/m ER/Trauma phlebotomist and I will be entering nursing school this fall ( after a 2 year wait). I have pretty much made up my mind that the ER will be the best fit for me as im the type of person who can not sit still
. Anyway, I have several male friends currently in nursing school ( some first year some about to graduate) that have made it known to me that 1) I will, being a guy, have at most maybe 3 other guys in a class of 35 and that leads to 2) 4 out of the 5 friends said that they were not allowed to preform assessments on the other female students, however, the women where able to preform mock assessments on the men. Now correct me if im wrong ,but wont I be working on BOTH men and women in the hospital lol. This is not the first time I have heard of such a thing concerning instructors having this bent to the male students. I hope one day this divide that still seems to prevail even in nursing schools ( much less the real world setting) will disappear ,but for now what is your thinking about this? Thanks again.

Well, I don't do my OB rotation for a few more weeks, but my clinical group is 4 males and 4 females, so I hope half of us aren't doing anything!
