There would be business done on the golf course

There would be thoughts on how innovative one could get

There would be zero tolerance for abusive patients

Maid service? What's that?!!

If Nursing were a male dominated field...

There would be respect for hierarchy

Being snarky? We would duke it out where it really counts...the bar!

There would be organization... there would be a constant think-outside-the-box

Just because it has always been done that way,

Does not mean it should stay that way!

Change is a constant in life...embrace it.

If nursing were a male-dominated field...

Martyrdom would die...a thousand deaths

They would be paid every cent of their worth

Press Garney be darned

Show me the darn money!

If nursing were a male-dominated field

There would be deals and a lot of networking

Hey, mi casa, su casa!

There would be more of open communication

Less of passive aggressive behavior

Trust me, you won't need a code to decipher what they meant

If nursing were a male-dominated field, there would be less of this

After a fight, misunderstanding...anything

(Female Version): "I am never going to speak to that female dog again"

And more of this:

(Male version): "Dude, still meeting up tonight right?"

If nursing were a male-dominated field

No work would get done...because the nurses would have been appropriated by the female patients who just want a listening ear and the males nurses who just.can't.say.no!

But nursing is not a male dominated field, so we live on...

The End

You. have. got. to. be. joking.

If nursing, regardless of gender, was dominated by adults who know how to act like adults, and professionals that know how to be professional, then the stereotypes would fade away.

Nursing needs less stereotypes. But they refuse to go away. So we live on....

It is male dominated in some areas. Also by history it was a male profession

really?

That is why wall-street is such a peaceful place to work with welcoming arms to the next guy....med school isn't competitive and sport team hazing is a thing of the past.

AND.....Female patients will swoon over thier male nurse....

Interesting...

Cute post though.

Definitely much less passive-aggressive behavior; as a guy I never saw so much of it until I went into nursing. Even a lot of the ladies who try not to get sucked into it end up becoming a part of it. As a guy it's easier to stay out of it all in most situtations. I can't believe the behavior I see in nursing sometimes.
