Lists have been published on the site for Why You Should Date a Single Mom, a Geek, a Wrestler and hundreds of other categories. Not to be outdone, the medical professions have also posted “Ten Reasons Why You Should Date: a Physician, a Physical Therapist, an EMT, and other medical professions.

Nurses, of course, have their ten reasons. Here is one Top Ten Reasons You Should Date a Nurse List, courtesy of a group on Facebook:

1. They can help you get over a hangover or sickness.

2. Bedbaths!

    We asses all areas of the body
    Scrubs make for easy access
    They don't gag
    They know your body inside and out
    They know mouth to mouth
    2 words... Sponge Bath
    They know how to penetrate things
    They have restraints and aren't afraid to use them
    They always have a rubber on hand
    They can go all night long
    We’re used to handling all types of bodily fluids
    We’re good at taking orders
    We know all the right places to palpate
    We know how to properly apply restraints
    We know lots of different positions…
    We know that lubrication is helpful in any procedure

    I believe we (as nurses) should not take ourselves too seriously. As the saying goes, " humor is the best medicine right behind antibiotics". We nurses should be able to take a joke, after all we won't get out of this world alive anyway.

    Many are true, some are funny, others are on the edge. None the less we can all relate in one way or another as nurses. I'm way past the dating thing, but I found truth and amusement or ignorance in all of these entries.

    I thought this was funny!!! It is a JOKE!!! This is one of the reason people don't want to go into the nuring profession, many nurses can't ever take a joke. Lighten up.
