re teaching male nurses?

  1. This is just to ask nursing instructors most of whom are female if they find it harder to teach male nursing students in clinical rotations than female nurses. i ask these because females tend to handle more tasks at the same time better than males and as we all know( a little stereotype) nursing is much easier if you can handle more than one task. ie give a bed bath while doing physical assesments.
    I ask these coz in clinicals, i see many of the male collegues have to explain to instructors why failed to do certain assesments when they were doing other things for example assesment when giving a bed bath.
    just wondering.

    I know both men and women who have trouble breathing and walking at the same time. I don't see gender as a factor here.
