I would like to see some diversity. Why can't more nerdy girls become nurses?

Where do you work? Not a single one of my co-workers can do a back flip...

The only ex cheerleader on my floor is a guy. He does a mean back handspring.

Wasn’t a cheerleader. I’m not sure why you think all cheerleaders become nurses.  Most of my ex-classmates that were cheerleaders are not nurses.

I'm the only former cheerleader in my area. But I was nerdy as well. You will find many from every walk of life, socioeconomic group, or other setting that you wish to define, in nursing.

Dyed in the wool heavy metal listening scifi watching LOTR quoting nerd here. Of course I have tons of respect for anyone that can do a back handspring.

At my age, if I do a back handspring, someone had better be prepared to take me to the ER or Urgent Care. I'm not going to finish that unscathed 🤣

And Lordy, I ❤ heavy metal

I certainly wasn’t a cheerleader.  I was an actress and was in all of the school plays.  Really want to do some local theater but hard to find a nursing job where the schedule will allow me to do that😢
