I'm currently a new nurse at an academic hospital in a large city. There are definitely an abundance of attractive residents.

There is a surgical resident that has been flirting with me for the past couple of weeks. Is it ok for nurses to date doctors?

Would you date a doctor?

Yay or nay.

I wouldn't for the sole reason if you started getting serious and he was still going to be rotating through your unit and things didn't work out it could be akward for you and he. However, when has logic had anything to do with these matters?

Any workplace relationship could either go good/ turn sour really quickly. I don;t see anything wrong w/ dating a doctor, but plz use discretion. Keep ur personal life & feelngs to urself, working w/ all females is difficult enough, bringing a man in the picture is just going to bring u trouble. When I am in rotations there are plently of nice looking residents flirting & there is alot of potential, but use caution. I say go for it, have fun, but keep it between u & him, don;t even confide in those u "think" are ur friends in the workplace, keep those 2 worlds completely seperate.

I agree with PurpleRN. However, make sure he isn't married. You wouldn't want to be involved in a workplace scandal. ha :imbar I know many couples who met like this and they have been happily married for years. Some have a happy ending, some don't. But that's life.... So if he is of quality character and sincere, go for it. If he's a dog....run for your life!!!!!!:redbeathe:redbeathe:smokin:

Yo,

If I can find a doctor babe that likes short dumpy guys with a beer belly and a coat of hair a bear would be jealous of, I would date her in a heart beat ;)

One of my former co-workers started dating one of the first year residents (we have a family practice residency program at my hospital) and they pretty much kept it on the downlow until they were serious, only they didn't really let on how serious they were until they had eloped!!

He's in his 3rd year now, and she transferred to cath lab. They are both deliriously happy, and they will have beautiful kiddies!

But I saw they interact pretty regularly both when they weren't dating, they were dating and few people knew, and after they got married and they kept it VERY professional.

So keep it casual and professional and save any drama for TV, LOL!!

Only if I could find a hottie male dr that likes short, fat, dumpy women with sarcastic attitudes, I would too!!! My poor hubby wouldn't stand a chance!

Really, I NEVER mix business with pleasure, it causes more trouble than it's worth. I don't even socialize with anyone at work except a friend that works in dietary that was my friend long before I ever became a nurse....I just don't like everyone knowing my business. I wouldn't do it, but if you must, make sure that he is available (do your own checking first, and do it discreetly). Also, make sure that you're the only one he's flirting with, he may be a natural flirt who has 20 nurses in the building on a string. Procede with caution.

You're grown, so whatever decision you make should be yours and solely yours! However, the advice is good, could be bad and could turn out good, but what relationship doesnt have these same predictions? if u like him, i say GO FOR IT! U both seem to be establishing pretty great careers and have the same interest so u'll have plenty to talk about, but on the downside, U''ll have to hide the relationship, which can cause stress so jus weigh ur pros and cons... but i say, GO FOR IT!

Why not? Are you attracted? Keep work and play separate...

I personally wouldnt, but to each their own.

I've had the workplace romance in my previous career and will not go down that road again. Although we kept it under wraps and was very professional at work, we were spotted out on a date by a couple of our co-workers and then next thing we knew, everyone knew about it.

I ended up transferring to another office but we continued to date. We split up at the end of my first semester of nursing school.

I get a few security officers flirting with me at work. I smile and keep it moving.

What do you mean flirting..there are many men who flirt like to flirt with women but that doesnt mean they want you to be their girl.
