Who is a nurse?

A nurse is a caregiver for patients and helps to manage physical needs, prevent illness, and treat health conditions. To do this, they need to observe and monitor the patient, recording any relevant information to aid in treatment decision-making.

It is a gender neutral term and can mean several things. Nursing a baby is a term for breastfeeding an infant. Nurse is a verb as well as a noun.

Are nurses only female

Males nurses are often dubbed ‘murses’, however nurses remain divided as to whether the term is derogatory or not, with some rejoicing in the fact that male nurses have a name specific to their gender and role, and others not seeing the necessity of such a term.

I for one can’t see why this term even exists, shall we start calling female nurses ‘furses’ now as well then?

Nurses may be any gender. I have known many fine nurses who happened to be male.

Most often, people think nurses are only female but that’s not the whole show. There are male nurses also.They provide same care as female nurses and not as how people think they are just assistants to the females.

Nurses may practice independently, interdependently or dependently, based on setting and circumstance.
