Real simple question for the fellas (and any trainspotting female RNs)...I recently had a recruiter inform me that at their acute care facility they "follow an affirmative action hiring policy". I know affirmative action includes gender, but I didnt want to say anything as not to come of as rude. However, why are acute care facilities (some) literally blind to the ridiculous gender gap in nursing. I mean, its not like men are 40% of RNs, their 6%!

We white, straight, Protestant, heterosexual males don't get breaks anymore.

Couldn't have said it better myself

Affiirmative action is counter productive IMHO. However, I'm not sheddiing any tears for the poor hard done by white, straight, protestant, heterosexual males :zzzzz

Please, don't shed any tears for me. I don't mind actually working for what I get out of life. I feel sorry for those affected by affirmative action.
