Discrimination to Male Nurses is really morale downing not to mention that there is also discrimination to Board Ratings. I still remember what my older brother who graduated from Nursing in 1990 said that during those times Hospitals will be the one calling up newly graduated nurses and luring them with lucrative offers to work at their institution. Also hear this guys requirements are only to follow upon hiring, Male/Female, and applicants are only asked if you passed the Board Exams and that's good enough for the Now-Corrupt-Hospital Management. Sigh.. Those days are gone..
I do agree with john83 that the government should quickly pass a bill that will protect us Male Nurses from unjust treatment and discrimination. They should also include a bill waving board ratings replacing them with certificates if you passed or failed the exams. That will help better protect not just Male Nurses but also Female Nurses alike.
