Are Nurses Promiscuous/Flirty? Is It A Myth?

Hey NL, I just need Ur opinion on this, I am a nurse based in the US, I studied nursing in d US so never had the

naija nurse experience. One of ma friends called me and said "Nurses are flirts, I know u not though (bet he was

trying to make me feel good)".

So tell me, I know am not, I love what I do and probably wont have it any other way (helping people gives me a satisfaction), but is that Ur opinion of nurses?

@ Davenport: your remark was both disrespectful and sarcastic, rude and an insight to who you are, Sorry but no apology as it seems a direct attack to you.

You seem like the type who ll bask in the euphoria of the attention those auxiliary nurses give, lol, that's all they know, ps not all of them either as some use that as a foot stone to an accredited school plus have good morals not cos of the likes of you but for themselves.

I speak for my self and Nurses like me both in Nigeria and diaspora, I have touched the lives of many with my profession both back home and since moving to the States! We work so hard that we barely have time for ourselves or families not to talk of bothering about the rusty piece of crap you have curled inbtw your legs or the nasty diseases the tubes or balls of hell might be holding.

We have big hearts, if your mom was a Nurse, i wonder if you ll feel this excited and smart lipped to refer to nurses as having big holes not heart.

If your mom was one, which either way she does have a hole, it must have been big enough to expand or you would have been stuck in there drinking as much fluid as you can while we the nurses run around doing everything humanly possible to get you out of it! Are you trying to say you have not been touched by the care of a nurse?

Promiscuity is an individual thing. I was a nurse in Nigeria, not a dr's office nurse but a duly trained nurse in a school accredited by the Nursing & Midwifery council of Nigeria.

You should be able to distinguish between people who are professional and who are slutty, plus if one or 2 or 3 nurses decides to have sex with as much men as comes their way that's them, you can't label everyone just because your friend supposedly bagged or wanted to bag one.

Il confirm what a lot of people have already attested to, Promiscuity is a thing of the mind, different from each person, in a profession where women are much with less number of males and the possibility of being so busy you wont find time to date outside school or work hours, you find most Nurses seeking love and affection from the people they come in contact with, all with the hope of that person being the one! And end up being taken for granted.

Then there are those who like to hunt and be hunted, wild in nature, it has nothing to do with the profession, if nursing does anything really sexually to the mind of the students, its more consciousness to the diseases outside, that you can both see, read about and hear people complain about, after the initial shyness/ excitement of seeing one then 2 or more men & women Unclad, it becomes boring that all you want is to do your job, get it over with and leave for the sanity and solitude of your home.

Just like you see a lot of bankers end up marrying fellow bankers, Nurses also mingle with either the Dr's they work with or people who they meet and have cared for,

Now that is not to say there aren't sluts amongst us, quite a few looking back i can finger out many too who would sleep with anything even a rock in disguise, married or single, who think they can get anything they want just by giving out a piece of the folds between their thighs, but that is a fraction of them, Most nurses like i am, and my mother are responsible, hardworking caring self sacrificing individual who take our profession seriously, hold Ethics and Nursing codes strongly and appreciate the joy that caring for others brings us!

Satisfaction that money cant buy!

Let's try to be nice when we talk about people and professions that are life savers, stereotyping does no good, it only instills negative thoughts in the open minds of those honestly seeking truthful opinions. If smiling at you and making you feel comfortable and relaxed enough to let them care for you as should be done is the crime we have committed then i hope you meet someone stern and unfriendly and mean in your next visit!

That was my $0.02 ,

Some nurses are just way too flirty to be called professionals. Where I work, the nurses will go to the 'white' men's room and will collect dollars and gifts from them. Tell me you men, how many of you will just part with gift items and money without getting 'a lil something' in return? Most of these white men are in their 60s oh. They strut their behind shamelessly and are always very friendly only to the opposite sex (i mean female nurses). These ones lack the dignity attributed to the profession of taking care of the sick. With that said, I will say most of the dignified nurses are those married ones although i recently overheard a male doctor friend telling a friend about his escapades with a married nurse where he works. His claim is that she threw herself at him, and he wanted to have a feel too. Too bad, that's what is prevalent in our society.

Like somebody posted before nurses are very close to their customer's,they talk to you when you really need somebody,they care,pet you up,feed you sometimes cos you are sick,so what do you pay them back with since most of them are single ladies.you want to date them whenever ur sickness goes,you pay them visits upon visits.people just do not understand the job ethics

The reason why it is common to Nurse is that they believe they can always control anything to avoid pregnancy and STD; and they like eating sex like plantain.

The allegation is very unfounded. Nurses are never flirts. There are evidences of great men and women nurses who are good and faithful fathers and mothers. It's a big fallacy to make such loose statement. We have people who flirt who are not nurses. I will agree that there may be somebody that you may have known who flirts and happened to be a nurse, but you must realize it is a personal thing. Some lawyers, engineers and even antisans flirt but does that make them nurses? It not fair to make such castigation of a profession based on here say. So, my friend go about your profession and practice it to the best of your ability with dignity and pride.

nurses as in NURSES who are professionally trained will never do such a thing.but i ve to be sincere that those auxillary ones(we call them nurse muyiwa) that sit at the reception are the bad ones.they are rude,chew gum and can actually do what that guy said(the ones talkin about sex then goin to check himout).they are not the trained types.they are more of apprentices

They are part of the society so they are not worse that bankers, teachers, office workers, police women, market women and the rest. It depends on you are dealing with. The olden days myth was based on perception that they had access to pregnancy preventive drugs but these days who among them does not?

Its mainly has to do with the younger and single nurses sha, i have an experience bout that, the married ones dont have time for that, the younger ones will come around you and kinda show their professionlism in caring but when they are interested in you they go further, you know what i'm saying. I've personally withnessed that and some even say they're in luv with me, but i cant fall in luv with everybody!

I think people often mistaken the attention and the kindness the nurse shows to mean something else. She asks about your night and how you are fairing , and the next that comes to a guy's mind is "she wants sex". It does not necessarily mean they are promiscous, but most of them sabi do,

Go ahead and enjoy your career gal.

Sorry to disappoint u, this is not a Nollywood observation, I Just was interested in other matured people's opinion.

It does not matter what others think, I just was curious (wanted to av an Idea of what is going on in some people's mind when they hear u r a nurse)

[b]As for me I am a NURSE, I am so proud to be one, and need I say more, i know I am a good one. I love helping people, and I derive pleasure in helping family and especially my friends figure out what is going on with them. It is what I do and live for, am an advocate for my patients, above all I respect every individual and love my God[/b]

U r so right @ times i wonder if I av any life outside my job @ all. Aye o po rara.

People should note that when generalizing, it does not mean that the probability of certainty is 1 or complete or 100%. WIth this and my little experience with Nursing students only i will generalize that they are flirts. Note it does not mean all of them oh! Am talking from my experience of 4 nursing schools close to me. They are all the same except 4 the degree awarding nursing school i know which the girls are a little more matured in theiir relationships. Even b4 i saw this thread i already promised myself to stay away from nurses, i dont trust them.

This thing happens in evry profession. My cousin is a nurse and she tells me the belief is true because nurses are more exposed to birth control and mayb male genitals. Personally i admire them and wld love 2 marry a nurse cause i love d care her profession offers and the love she has 4 me. This belief is making it difficult 4 me 2 find a virtuous nurse.Wld preferred a doctor, but they seem too busy 4 love.

who be tis man?? looks like u have been attending a real quack hospital. i happen to be in the medical profession - a medical student. trained and qualified nurses are very respected and in no way what you suppose. i am much familiar with what u have stated here. it happens in some private hospitals where the doc hires unprofessional/apprentice nurses to tend patients. all they do is sit around there and gossip. you can hardly find such in a federal or state medical facility.

While saying nurses are promiscuous is a crude generalization, there are some profession that make it difficult to sustain a steady relationship e.g. oil servicing, flight crew, showbiz etc.

Some Nurses, not all are promiscuous. My Doctor friend has got a handfull of nurses he screw every now and then. He tells me his escapades with them. The last one he screwed had to lie to her Fiancee that she was on night shift whereas she was off duty.

well I think I have to disagree a little because if I have to use my very few experiences visit hospitals then I will be right to sya that they are; maybe its because they see the private parts of guys who visits hospitals for treatment o; the last hospital I visit had girls they most men will like to take to bed, maybe it was a delibrate attempts by the management; they were talking about sex not minding the visitors or patient around the reception; I must confess I collected the number of 3 of them and they were willing to come to my house, in fact one of them did but nothing happened becos she was on, so she promised to come another day but I decided not to call anyone of them again because it was too easy and I fear other visitors could have been doing the same to them, even some of my friends who visit the hospital with me had their way with other girls. no disrespect to the profession I know we can find some of them that are not like that but ,
