Interesting poll. It's going to be interesting to see if my stereotype of male nurses perferring places like ER and ICU is true.

I would eventually like to get into education

Critical Care: add me to the stereotype.

Peds BMT, I am one of 5 in our area, about 10% of the nurses on our floor. Every day I am pleasently surprised at how many of my peers are also men.

Med/Surg on the Cardiac/Gen. Surg/Bariatric, floor.........my goal is to get to the PACU someday soon.

Specializes in SICU-MICU,Radiology,ER.

Havent we done this already?

Anyway.... five years ICU-SICU (transplant-cardiac etc etc).

I moonlight in a couple small ERs.

Currently deployed.

Would like to get into transport or flight. I dont think I could stomach the ICU anymore after this. Id like to go to EMT-P school for fun but I dont see how I could find the time-

Went into the ED right out of school, sort of goes with the Army side. Hoping to continue with Critical Care or Or. Really found Med/Surg dull during school.

Were you a Combat Medic in the AMEDD?

BTW, if you found Med/Surg boring most likely will find the OR boring, too. I'd bet you'd like working in the ICU, or CCU.

30% ER and ICU. While not a majority, still the largest two categories.

Yep, most male RNs seem to lean towards the technical side of nursing, i.e. ER, ICU, , Stepdown/PCU, CRNA

... however, nothing wrong with a male nurse in Med/Surg, or any of the other areas ;)

Specializes in ER, Corrections, LTC, ICU, Case Mgt. Has 18 years experience.

I am currently working in Telephone triage center in NC. I just began Grad school towards MSN and hope to begin working as clinical instructor at ADN program in the fall part-time until a full time faculty position opens. (I have worked in ED,ICU, Most of my time, but have also worked in IV therapy, nursing home(as an ADON), home health and corrections nursing(medium custody state prison.)

er/trauma...treat 'em and street 'em. got to love the flow. are there disproportionate numbers of er, icu, cicu, etc. nurses that are veterans as compared to other specialties or is it just me?

It's not a stereotype with my school. I'm one of 2 men in a class of 40. Both of us are going ICU-->CRNA.
