KNOCK KNOCK - Hello? Is this thing on? T1 I'd say yes-it is, and will be perceived as afemale field for quite some time. !fb #RNchat

@joniwatson Hola! We have one topic tonight - I'll break into subtopics if we need to.Welcome! #RNchat

T1 despite our best efforts, I think many still view nursing as a female profession. Proudto work alongside my male colleagues, tho #rnchat

T1 I know my family supports my decision to be a nurse, but I know several people whothink I'm aiming low by entering nursing !fb #RNchat
8/6/2010 21:17 
jtknowles007:
T1 RWJF has done a fabulous job highlighting male nursing and increasing nursingdiversity #rnchat
8/6/2010 21:18 
joniwatson:
Is it sexist of me to notice, but it seems there are more guys in ER and critical care?
suzishepherd:
 
#rnchat
8/6/2010 21:18 
T1 It's as if they think I should be ashamed to be a man who is also a nurse! !fb #RNchat
8/6/2010 21:19 
jtknowles007:
@suzishepherd lol! Welcome...post-call brain and all. :) #rnchat
8/6/2010 21:19 
joniwatson:
@suzishepherd lol - well, I was ICU - but I think that's because I'm a control freak, not aguy ;) #RNchat
8/6/2010 21:20 
rnchat:
T1 this topic reminds me of @redhourben in "Meet the Parents" #malenurse #rnchat
8/6/2010 21:21
joniwatson:
@suzishepherd - I don't think it's sexist to notice male vs female in a particular area. Itbecomes sexist (cont) !fb #RNchat
8/6/2010 21:22 
jtknowles007:
T1 As an example, are Police strikes perceived differently than Nursing strikes? If so,might sexism partially explain? #RNchat
8/6/2010 21:22 
rnchat:
@suzishepherd when we start to believe only a man or a woman belongs in a particularplace. !fb #RNchat
8/6/2010 21:22 
jtknowles007:
@jtknowles007 any clue what specialty you're leaning towards? #rnchat
8/6/2010 21:23 
joniwatson:
@joniwatson - undecided at this time. I'm keeping my mind open at this point and waitingto see what I find interesting. !fb #RNchat

jtknowles007:
Working, but i will say male nurses rock! RT @PhilBaumann: Where oh where are the#nurses tonight on #RNchat?

holisticnurses:
@jtknowles007 good plan! #rnchat
8/6/2010 21:25 
joniwatson:
@rnchat hmmm. Police vs. Nursing strikes. I perceive them the same. I have a prettystrong opinion abt public servant strikes anyway #rnchat
8/6/2010 21:27 
joniwatson:
@jtknowles007 Sorry, didn't read back enough. Got it. Enjoy my male colleagues and tryto be inclusive when I write about nurses. #rnchat
8/6/2010 21:28 
suzishepherd:
@joniwatson ok - then you're fair about it ;) ...still might there be a larger population thatreacts differently b/w the two? #rnchat
8/6/2010 21:29 
rnchat:
T1 as for the example - here in middle America, cop=man, nurse=woman, and sinceman=breadwinner it is ok for them to strike !fb #RNchat
8/6/2010 21:29 
jtknowles007:
 
@suzishepherd No problem. Obviously I didn't mean you specifically, I meant people'sperceptions in general. !fb #RNchat
8/6/2010 21:30 
jtknowles007:
@rnchat ha! Yes. Agree the public likely sees them differently; I do think sexism may playa role in that. #rnchat
8/6/2010 21:31
joniwatson:
Lot of NICU parents (young) assume the men are doctors and the women are nurses (sonot true). I'd have thought we'd be past that. #rnchat
8/6/2010 21:32 
suzishepherd:
T1 and don't forget the media plays a large role in our views of "who" nurses are. I feel arant coming on....#rnchat
8/6/2010 21:33 
joniwatson:
@philbaumann I'm sorry I'm unable to tune in--or even lurk tonight. I'm at OVO! #RNchat

RT @joniwatson: T1 and don't forget the media plays a large role in our views of "who"nurses are. I feel a rant coming on....#rnchat
8/6/2010 21:33 
holisticnurses:
@joniwatson And so, regardless of the inherent ethics of N striking, might then sexismadd an extra emotional layer to the debate? #RNchat
8/6/2010 21:34 
rnchat:
@KPNurseRecruit No worries. Cheers! #RNchat
8/6/2010 21:34 
rnchat:
@rnchat definitely. Great point, Phil. #rnchat

joniwatson:
T1 What do you think about this claim?: "Modern nursing was forged as a female-dominated profession w/in a male-dominated society." #RNchat

T1 great ? I must agree with it. Females *really* stood up to make nursing a trueprofession. #rnchat

joniwatson:
T1 for example, the ANA & most state nsg associations were started by groups of womenb4 they even had the right 2 vote. *a-maz-ing* #rnchat

@joniwatson T1 RE: ANA & nrsg assocs. hmm...I'd never considered that before. Greatpoint. !fb #RNchat
