Congratulations, you just completed years and years of arduous schooling to earn your nursing qualification! Choosing a career path with the ability to impact lives through meaningful connections directly is an admirable decision, but also a challenging one. After dedicating what seems like a lifetime to hitting the books and spending long, stressful nights in the library and it has finally paid off. Now what? What is the next step?
In a society where we often assume the nursing role to be primarily taken up by females, it might come off as strange for some to see male nurses running about in the hospitals or clinics. With such uncertainty, it’s usually common to hear many impressions on what a male nurse is usually not, and how they compare against their female colleagues.
