I've been a nurse for 9 months and have never had an issue. I never had any problems during nursing school either. I worked for about 2 1/2 years, before nursing school, as a CNA, and no problems there either. As a CNA there was the occasional elderly female that did not want me helping them change clothes or shower, but that was rare. I not experienced this as a nurse. I have never had any problems from peers, supervisors, or employers. I don't feel that I am treated any differently. The only thing that I might say is, the nights that are stacked heavy with make nurses are quieter (around the nurses station) that those nights that are heavy with female nurses. But, I don't mind either way, and neither do the ladies I work with. We all get along well and truly work together as a team.
