Are there more men in nursing then their used to be? I know that years ago nursing was one of the main careers open to women, along with teaching. But I wonder if more opportunities for women has lessened the perception of this field as a women's field?

I have several male friends that want to be nurses. I think it's great that it's no longer considered a woman's profession. I would gladly be treated by any of my future nurse friends. They are kind, caring, and funny. Women are no longer the only great comfort. It's a step in the right direction for sure.

I think that more fields have opened up to both sexes. I don't think men being nurses is as socially unacceptable as it once was. I have seen tons of male nurses in hospitals and doctor's offices and I think it is great. Of course you also see more female doctors than you used to too.

I have seen an increase in male nurses. I think it is great for men to feel more comfortable in the nursing role and not necessarily just as doctors or techs.

It has become a career that is more open to men. I know several men who are nurses or nurse practitioners and I think its great that its becoming more accepted.
