    Do You Have Male Nurses on your Unit?

    Hello: I am a male nurse, I can repond to the male bashing. First we blend in well with females, that is untill they talk trash about us. Most females, not all, love to gossip and talk. Male nurses do there work, and if we have anything to say, we say it to your face. My unit consists of 50% males, which is very odd in the nursing profession. We have peace and harmony when all males are working. We all get along well, no issues. On the other hand, on days that I am the only male it is usualy miserable. Let me explain, I come out of patients rooms and hear the females talking bad about the male nurses for whatever reason. Just because most female nurses have a rotten relationship at home, or noneo all, do not take it out on us. This profession is hard enough to exist in, because less than 6% of all nurses are males. I have been an RN for two years and have just finished by BSN recently while working full-time and with family. I have been the only male in all of my classes as a nurse. As far as slobs, I have never seen such sloppy messes left in the break room, than from female nurses. I also do not appreciate bloody female napkins left in the staff rest rooms, left lying around. Do you act like this at home? I can see why this female dominated profession has not evolved into the careers that men seek. Because females turn on each other and eat their own. With female nurses in leadership roles there has been very little progression in salary or pay. Let me ask you, if the roles were reversed do you think you would be making more money? I do not go to work to be miserable, yet with things I have heard at work make this a hostile environment for males. Example: My boss (female), informed me that a female nurse told her that I wanted her job. I never in a million years would want her job, and never said anything even close to this. Can you beleive the hatred that it takes for someone to tell her this.

    any advice?

    Do not worry about waiting lists etc.... do your best on pre-requisites for asd in Nursing. Apply to nursing school as soon as you have pre-req's completed. Go from there. I had a 4.0 average and was told waiting list is 3 years, well within two weeks time that tured into 2 years wait. Then two weeks after that dropped to one year. Then one week later received invitation to shortned RN program, and that started in a month. I applied and received the position and graduated in 18 months with degree. So do not listen to what everyone says about waiting list. My only advise is apply to all nursing schools in your area. Good Luck!!
