    It was felt that since nursing is predominantly a female profession, the males would appreciate a place of their own where they could discuss issues specific to their career choice.

    We do have over 200 forums, so hopefully you can find something you like?

    Gee, I think there probably are issues specifically related to female nurses also.

    BTW: you seem to have jumped to some conclusion about me.

    Somehow that reminds me of:

    "Why don't we have a white history month?"
    "Why doesn't our city have a "straight" pride parade like the gays have?"

    With a profession still remaining over 90% female and a long history of discouraging men from entering a so-called women's profession.....you do the math.

    Interestingly enough, nursing didn't actually start out that way. But as a child of the 70's and 80's, boys were hardly encouraged in any way, shape, or form to grow up and become nurses.

    Now I know that some guy might pipe in and say that he was encouraged to go into nursing because his mother or cousin was a nurse or whatever, but that's more the exception and hardly the rule, at least in those days.
