Quote from RN/MSN/JD
.........is the FEMALE Nursing Student Forum?
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.
