For generations, male nurses have been ridiculed for working in "a woman’s profession."

Researchers at East Tennessee State University said that it's a stereotype which could discourage men from entering the profession and concern those that have chosen to pursue it.

But now there is more positive news that would make Greg Focker happy.  (Don't know who Greg Focker is?  See the video below.)  According to a study, male nurses are more masculine than other men.

Researchers  gave male nurses and male college students tests measuring masculinity.  The average masculinity score for male nursing students was 5.3 (out of 7), compared to 4.9 for male students.

Hopefully this news will encourage more men who want to join the nursing field to go ahead and do it.
