have you noticed any advantages or disadvantages to being a male np?
Clinic job means no longer being the go-to heavy lifter in the hospital?
People tend to think the males are Drs. (real doctors)
I would also suspect as across occupations males make more money because they are willing to research their worth and require appropriate compensation.
I think being able to pee standing up is pretty great. Beyond that, I'd say most any advantage is going to be based on the person, not on the plumbing (which I suppose means the one thing I could come up with doesn't really count..). Mostly kidding. It is 2018- seems like it's about time to get past stuff like this.
I work in the Southwest with a large Hispanic population, and I've found older folks here seem to prefer being seen by a man as opposed to a woman. I worked in an office when I just started practicing with a female NP with 10 years experience, and I would be asked to see lots of the patients because they didn't want a female seeing them. Didn't matter that I was brand spanking new.
I would imagine male NP's get compensated more too, which is congruent with the overall workforce as a whole.
