What if a guy wants to be a nurse?
Then you should become a nurse! I strongly recommend it if you want to make a difference, if you want job security and if you like working with people and enriching their lives! Although nursing in Texas is still about 94% female, the population of male nurses is growing fast. Men are realizing the vast opportunities nursing allows them to craft their own careers and to make a good living. Men are highly valued in nursing. They often choose the advanced practice role and become nurse anesthetists or nurse administrators. They also choose bedside nursing and direct care giving. Nursing is a great equalizer, so gender, ethnicity, and other characteristics do not matter. Men are considered a minority in nursing and thus have incentives to achieve in nursing. Nursing holds many opportunities for men to have a fulfilling career along with balance and meaning in their lives.
