10 Reasons to Date a Nurse

10 Reasons to Date a Nurse

NursingLink

February 09, 2009

Users on Facebook, the ultra successful social networking site, virtually given birth to a new user-generated genre: the “Ten Reasons Why You Should Date an XYZ (name of your profession goes here) List.”

Poll: For Valentine's Day do you...

Poll: For Valentine's Day do you...

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!

3. The uniform.

4. They are exposed to so many xrays, it’s like a form of birth control.

5. You will never need to buy condoms, paracetamol, toothbrushes or any hospital supplies.

6. They know how to handle bodily fluids!

7. Nothing shocks a nurse, they have always seen smaller or indeed bigger!

8. They won’t be disgusted by your toilet habits.

9. They are experienced in manual evacuation when you are full of you know what.

10. They know how to handle the human body.

Have another Top Ten Reasons list to share with us? Post it in our discussions on Nursinglink.com.

    11. If you are lucky enough to marry a nurse, in your old age, they will fulfill their spousely duties and take care of you by hiring a sexy, young nurse in hopes that you kick off quicker.

    Obviously, Nursing Link is not representing the millions of underpaid and unappreciated nurses who know that the best reason to date a nurse is that she is a caring, empathetic, intelligent, and will never devalue another person as you have just done to ALL NURSES!

    I think we deserve an apology for your blatant poor judgement and bad taste. I wonder if we as nurses should print a column on Whats the best reason to date a rude magazine editor.

    I am appalled that Nursing Link would allow such a demeaning article on the Nursing profession, when it claims to be supportive of Nursing! Articles like these deter and devalue the hard working nurses who already work for low pay and few promotions.

    this is really offensive. i'm surprised a website who is supposed to focus on the professionalism of nurses would put something like this up which degrades all of us.
