Whats so bad about being an RN?!Page 3 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)

that would have to be the stupidest reason to not date someone ever.
right up there with "she has long toes" or "he drives a volkswagon"...

theres always some incredibly shallow reasons to avoid dating certain people.
however, someone not liking you cause your a RN, has to be about the stupidest reason I ever heard.

your a beautiful girl, who any guy would be luck to date, and if he didn't want to cause your a RN, then just realize hes too damn stupid to bother and you deserve better.
theres like 4 billion guys on this planet, atleast 3.995 billion of them, would love to date you, whether your a RN or waitress...
the only reason to not date someone, based on thier job... is if they just don't have a job.
thats just too damn much to deal with then... if you atleast have a job, thats great, and being a RN is a good thing. not bad.

yes all this started from me posting something about having trouble finding the rigth person and that it's all an appearance thing blah blah blah and well some people gave me advise that i should chagne my profile alittle and this paramedic LPN wrote that I should not put down that I am RN cause he wouldn't date me and well that I would have alot of other issues with other professions cause I am an RN and that it's an obstacle and will be difficult to find someone cause I am labelled as such. Anyhow I don't understand what the hell that's got to do with the price of cheese anyhow, meaning being a nurse. I love my profession and well I shouldn't have to quit my job because someone doesn't like me and has to label me cray if that's the case then maybe I should quit and flip burgers oh no better not then I will be labelled as the junk food junkie..

Well Superjo this one is for you girl

GO FOR IT continue your nursing degree cause hun speaking from experience it's an amazing and rewarding career. I am an RN in Canada and have been for 5 years now I work in Cardiac Surgery fulltime and working on a part time job in Emergency. I am actually heading to Africa at christmas to do some nursing volunteer work in Ethiopia so there are a lot of exciting opportunites that can come out of nursing. I love my job it's the best thing I ever did for myself. It's truly what wolfboy said...I think some maybe intimidated because woman that are nurses are usually very smart, intellectual and intelligent people. They make decent money and are very independent and have control of their lives. Unfortuantely due to the way back in time role that men work and woman stay home and cook and clean that unfortunately is the issue why some may not date a nurse cause it's that intimidation they have no control cause she makes he own money and controls her life independently. Don't let the opinions of others shattered you life long dreams become a nurse honey if that's what you truly want to do....I love it!!

Started reading some of the responses and quit because none of them seem to be serious.

It is one of commitment. an RN is committed to their job, and any relationship they may be in need to understand this commitment.
Sadly to say, a lot of people are just plain selfish, they don't want to be with someone that has a shared commitment, where their job may actually at times the far more important than the relationship.
For me, a person that committed to their job, is wonderful. But if I would have a relationship with someone like that, I would have to be realistic, there will be times I come in second to what they have to do and if I can't deal with that, then shouldn't be in that type of relationship.

Sounds like someone has some unresolved relationship issues. Nursing is a great profession, I couldn't imagine doing anything else. Most of the nurses I know are compassionate, loving people. Of course, there is always the matter what profession. Even ax murderers have a job...LOL Seriously, though....there are ALWAYS two sides to every story...and of course, we've only heard the paramedic opinion...wonder what the nurse he dated would have to say about paramedics???? LOL

""""It was mentioned in an earlier thread by a paramedic that other "professionals" stay away from RNs. Which baffles me as a RN-to be.""""

Yeh, I remember seeing the thread she musta looked at. I was puzzled too. I think it ended up that it was kind of a fluke and just a couple of people had negative opinions about RNs. And here I thought guys loved a woman in a nurse uniform, or outfit, whatever.

RNs have a reputation for being cold and unfeeling. The job does that to them. At least after a few years. They become desensitized to pain and suffering. They also become bitter and antagonistic, resenting doctors that make 5 times their salary just for bossing them around. I've been in the hospital many times and I have never met a pleasant RN.

Are they like that in their personal lives? I would assume you don't turn that off just because you go off shift.

I stand by what I said even more now. Its' funny, we had this thread while back and I described RNs as such and a guy here piped in to say that I had just described his mother to a tee. Which is an amazing feat when you are making a generalization. But it was accurate enough to make my point.

Well...I don't know but there are more Nurses, Educators and Real Estate women on the Personals. Maybe it's cuz those careers are time and stress consuming that an honest relationship is difficult to have with those people. I know that I try to avoid all three. Gotta be a reason why they're prevalent.

I am a PSW worker and currently attending school to be an RN...i don't believe that ppl should judge other ppl on what they do....cause if we did, what would we say about garbage men....RN's are very compationate ppl to do the work they do, anyone in the health care profession absolutly wants a understanding companion by there side....the trick to it in my opinion is you never take your work and feelings home with you, that is when the problems start...just like with a bad day at the office...good luck to you!!

the only thing thats so bad about being an RN is reading threads like this that keep on reinforcing the stupid/untrue/ridiculous notions about nurses!

I've been a nurse for almost 10 years now , I *still* love it, I'm not depressed or desensitized, I may have a wacky sense of humour but that keeps me and my co workers in check and able to do the incredibly demanding job of being there for our patients.

you don't want to date me because I'm a nurse, a-okay with me,I don't want someone who isn't supportive anyway, to me thats no different than not wanting to date someone who is too tall/short/thin/fat , all these things are *parts* of a person, not the whole package.

Being a nurse is a huge part of my life, but it's not everything.

RN's are no different from any other profession... some are very human and some are very much like a programmed machine, capable to do their job well but lacking personality. I assume the big difference is which department they work in....

the other possibility is they might only want to date "up", to find someone who makes tons of money.

I love nurses and nought the Naughty kind. RM's and LVN's and even CNA's rock. They are hard working, caring. Most work simular hours to musicians so it sometimes makes afor a good match. 3 of my exes are nurses so I would date a nurse again for sure.

Most nurses are highly driven and goal oriented. Perhaps *that* is the issue

that's fine in a job, but there's no place in a relationship for that intensity
