    Welcome to the site! We're glad to have you. As you read through the forums, you're likely to discover that male nurses work in every specialty that females do. Critical care areas like ER and ICU often have high percentages of males.

    Males make good Nurses. That's the kind of Nurse they make. I honestly cannot think of a specialty where I don't know a (male) Nurse. BTW Nurse isn't male or female.

    Good luck!! Welcome to Allnurses!

    Males are in all kinds of fields in nursing though we tend to stay away from OB. Quite a bit of males are in the ER and critical care areas.
