    New Guy here, I'm considering nursing as a profession

    Hi Nathan ,If you are not sure that you will like nursing take the shorter course and see i,m in Australia so I'm not sure of the difference between lPN ect .by starting at the bottom so to speak you will learn all the basic stuff that forms the platform of care that will be of benifit to your patients if you go onto further studies.

    OB Clinicals

    Carolynd ,In the eaerly 70's I had limited experience in my general nurse training in gyny wards because i was a nurse who happened to be a male,however by the time I had finished the veils had been lifted i trained and a pupil midwife and completed the training and have been a licensed Midwife for about 30 yrs now. there are always some Ladies who prefer female doctors and nurses and there are probably more who are not bothered by the gender issue as long as you are competent to do the care required and have some practicale experience you can pass on to them and there husbands.
