Haha.. This post exemplifies a major problem with nursing. DRAMA. Why can't people just got to work, do their job, and go home? Who cares about who is dating who in the hospital. Lmao, it just seems so trivial. 

100% agree

I had no idea I was screwing a surgeon. It was embarrassing. He was hot though. 😆 🤣

If they love each other and are both free to date, then they should go at it.  If their relationship affects patient care, they shouldn't be in the same building.

I don't know, nursing students and young nurses are usually pretty hot and usually pretty horny. It would be wrong not to take advantage of that.

It was my non nursing life, almost got skinned by a few chicks.  Men scare me these days. Don't want a 45mm caliber sent to me via email. 😇

Meh.  I've seen the benefits.    My favorite cardiologist, who probably should be retired now, has been married to his nurse wife for over 50 years.  He has a soft spot for nurses (not the creepy old man soft spot).  He understands our plight and never raises his voice.  Another nurse just recently married a surgeon, after meeting in SICU  about 8 years ago.    He was such an a**.   When they started dating, he lightened up big time.  

If it is just a hook up, well good for them.  Sometimes that's all you need. 

I disagree with facilities disallowing it.   As long as it does not interfere with the job, who cares.

As long as it's adults that act like adults I have no problem with it.  Just don't pretend you're a character in Grey's Anatomy and hook up in the supply closet.

I met my husband at work in an ER. He wasn't a doctor then, but he is now. We no longer work in the same place, though. I have seen workplace relationships work and I have seen them fail. Totally person dependent, and generally not my business. 🙂

It's bad to date patients or spouses of patients.  Heck, it's bad to date anyone in the patient's orbit.  (And yes, people DO do this.  People lacking in integrity, of course.)  It's bad to date coworkers who are already married or engaged or otherwise in a serious relationship.  Dating your boss or your subordinate -- both bad ideas.  That can create drama.  

It may not be in your best interests to date someone with whom  you work on a regular basis, but hey -- you're an adult and can make your own decisions.  I've married two nurses.  One was an abuser who nearly strangled me to death and the other was a cheater and abuser who kept arranging "accidents" for me.  It didn't work out so well for me in the end, but your milage may vary.  My best friend married a doctor.  He was not much to look at, but he was the kindest, humblest, most genuinely nice person I've ever met.   She chose well.

I don't see the problem. I worked with my SO in the ICU for eight years and now we work together as NP's, before that we owned a mortgage business together, and even worked at a medical collections office together. It was really nice to have someone to "drive me home" in the morning and I drove on the way there.  It was also nice to have someone to eat breakfast with. I'm not very social, so other than her I would have had no one to talk to.

It constantly amazes me how many people put doctors on a pedestal and will date even the ugliest specimens, especially the male ones, gay or straight. Have you noticed a male doctor is rarely single? Even when he's a dog.

I think it has something to do with survival of the fittest.
