    What do you think about male nurse?

    WILL he face some social stigma by others?

    It's a moot point and an old-fashioned question.  There is, nor should there be, any stigma.  There have been male nurses since before I was born in '71.  I don't think there is an occupation left that does or should have gender stereotypes.

    With all due respect, this question is ridiculous on its face. Gender discrimination, bias, etc. are signs of ignorance.

      You are correct and some people are still ignorant about the issue, thus offering comments for the uninformed to read.

    No. As long as he is a good nurse and is good to his patients, gender plays no role in this profession.

    I always think about my high school friend, Nate. Last I heard he was training to be a nurse. He's so social I'm sure he will brighten up any hospital he enters.

    Having been hospitalized several times I have had may male and female nurses. Some of each gender were outstanding. A few from each gender was going through the motions.

    Becoming a nurse is not easy and anyone who completes all the course work and does become an RN should be recognized as a professional and nothing less.

    However, it has to be accepted that some women would not want some procedures done by a male nurse and some men have their issues with female nurses. That is one of the advantages of having nurses of both sexes.

    Some people have never had a male nurse and they my have questions because the term nurse still conjures up the image of the woman in the white dress and funny hat on her head, who is exceedingly nice or something of a tyrant. Both stereotypes are outdated and should be forgotten. Nurses should be identified as nurses, without regard to gender, just as writers should be viewed as writers, without regard to gender.

    I have worked with both male and female nurses. both are equally as good (or not so as the case may be). Gender is not an indicator of how well or how professional one is in their chosen career. One of the great qualities that male nurses bring to the profession is balance. The same could be said for women who become doctors.
    When will people stop stereotyping and take a person on their own merit. The only thing a woman can do that men can't is give birth and breast feed, but apart from that men and women are equal in their own right.
    Nursing is a career that requires passion and in my experience, both male and female nurses are equally as passionate.
