Do u prefer a male or female nurse?

I am a male nurse. But i never experience difficulties with male or females when nursing. But i hear from others that especially male nurses have difficulties to be accepted in most fields.

Last time I was in hospital one of the nurses was a man. He did a fine job. When I was 17 I worked as a nurse's assistant in a government hospital for 2 months. That gave me an appreciation for the work nurses do.

@Wraithorn that is awsome.
Makes no difference to me except in one category.. I fractured(hairline fracture) my pelvis bone and required a temp. Foly Catheter. U get where im going with this?

@SW-User He didn't insert it far enough. When catheterizing a male it's always further than you think. But you must get return flow before inflating the balloon.
@katielass that guy was a fool

@SW-User I've worked with a few male nurses who just didn't have the skills. And they all had an attitude that they couldn't be told anything.
Very happy with both, but have always enjoyed my interactions with male nurses. They are there with purpose.

I was in the hospital for 2 1/2 months two years ago and I had mostly male nurses. It didn't bother me. They already took my dignity when they stripped me to examine my body for cuts, scrapes etc. when I was admitted. We always uncovered one part at a time to allow the patient some dignity.
I don't really care which gender as long as they know what they are doing. I had mean male nurses and mean female nurses. One left a blown IV in my arm, while another nurse did not even bother to do her job while I was in the hospital with a hole in my lung.
@Snowvixen exactly. People at their most vulnerable

@SW-User i Have some female colleagues and i wonder why on esrth they became a nurse. They are monsters!
@Vestorius I once had a female nurse say that it was patients like me that made her night the worse. I just had my youngest and she said that. I was like bitch I just had a c-section!
Last time I went for a immunization I had a male nurse and he was so much better than a female one
it doesn't matter to me, as long as they're not a serial killer.

Either as long as they are good at their job.

@amvanquish true that is what is most important

I personally don't care. I think the connotations of gender when it comes to nurses is a thing of the past. Also, this is probably a dumb question that could easily be answered on google, but, does nursing require med school? Or is it just some specialized training after your undergrad?

@Iamofnothing i am a specialised nurse in the operation room (i am dutch and i dont know ur educational system) but i had to study 5 years and still need to do many courses to keep registrated.

I prefer not to need a nurse...
...but when I do I prefer the attention of a woman... (Sorry)
Vestorius · 36-40, M
@Tracos it is all cool bruuuh lol
I'd want a female nurse If I had a choice. But when I need one I do not care as long as they know what they are doing.
