I think this far from the truth. I don't think there is much "stereotyping" at all in this day an age. Maybe 10+ years ago there was, but definitely not today. I have NEVER come across any MD, nurse, colleague, patient, family members, or personal life people where I had to show respect or did not receive any respect for being a male nurse. Quite the opposite actually. More often than note, I get asked if I'm going for my MD while other times patients think I'm the MD. Regardless, I have yet to across across a person that does not respect me for being a "male nurse." Don't think any of my male nursing colleagues have had this issue either. If anything, I think I feel more respected because I'm a male when talking to MD's, in person or on the phone as opposed to my female colleagues who've had bad experiences conversing with these MD's.
In regards to the 2 movies mentioned, I'm not offended by either of them and I loved those movies as a kid. They're still funny to this day. I think the concern today is how TV shows portray nurses in a downplayed/downgraded kind of way like in Grey's Anatomy, The Good Doctor, and The Resident. It's more important to view how hollywood is incorrectly presenting us nurses as a whole.
@ OP, the world of male nursing has changed the past several years and I'd say much of what you have mentioned in your article is old and may not necessarily portray to a majority of the male nursing field in this day an age. Good information though and I do recall reading about possible "male nurse stereotypes" back when I was in nursing school. Other than that, I'm chillin right now on my telemetry floor and have been the last 4 years.
