On the Carpet:

Touch in Nursing: No Job for a Man?


2012-01 Be Someone Be a Nurse from MBCC Nurses I Nursing Tales - https___nursingtales.wordpress.com_tag_nurses_I work in psychiatric nursing, so touching is at a minimum across the board. I work most in geriatrics, though, so there is far more physical care.

As a male nurse this piece interests me: Touch in Nursing: No Job for a Man?

There will always be tension and confusion, as long as nursing views itself as women’s territory while taking on more men every day. It’s rarely been a problem for me, but I’m too unusual in many ways for categories or labels to contain or affect me. Perhaps that’s the reason it hasn’t been a problem for me?

About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!
