I disagree. Nurses can be strong, honest, and successful.

Thousands of us. Young and seasoned regardless of gender realized we wanted the best for out patients.

We did it for out patients while knowing we had to tale care of ourselves so we could care for them. If you want to start learning how thousands of nurses, mostly women, succeeded in achieving safe staffing ratios thus saving lives of hospital patients in our state. All while improving working conditions of those who came to California hospital nursing after 2004 please read the links and watch the video:

Most of us volunteer to donate money for political activities such as the ratio campaign. We employ attorneys who work for nurses.

I not only disagree with this idea, I find it offensive. In nursing, or in any other aspect of life, I have never needed men to "advocate for" or "represent" me.

I liked these two posts very much. Anyone familiar with herring's history as a nurse would never say she needed to wait for a man to advocate or represent her and her fellow nurses (some men of course).

And I've never needed a man to "advocate" or "represent" me either. It's nice to have the support of your fellow nurses, male or female, but I stand up for myself. Always have.

So, count me in as disagreeing with that post as well. :up:

Nobody said anything about waiting for a man to advocate for you. But it is disingenuous to suggest that it is not helpful to have allies from the side of the "opposition pov".

Whether or not you feel you need my male advocacy, I'm going to offer it because it is the right thing to do.

I think we are always better working together.

She was responding to this post:

Starbrown, and that's the Catch 22 situation that prevents nurses from progressing. Enhanced empathy and sympathy levels. As stated before, we need male nurses to advocate for us. That's their forte' anyway. As we employ lawyers to do our dirty work, we need to push male nurses to represent us. They actually enhance their reputation by being strident, we would be described far more colourfully:no:
