Is there anything wrong with being a male nurse?

January 19, 2007 4:31pm CST
I want to be a nurse but when i decide to go september i am wondering if the female nurses at the nursing school will treat me differently because they may feel its not for me to be there because im a male. I had a lot of family members who are nurses,i work at a hospital but i just want to be a registered nurse anything wrong with that?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. And I don't think anyone will make fun of you for doing so. I think it's a crime that men are conditioned to get only 'masculine' jobs. This is ridiculous. And I think many men have missed their true calling because they did what society said their supposed to do, instead of what their heart desires. Do what you love to do, and you will indeed be prosperous.
