10 Reasons To Date A Nurse

Users on Facebook have 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.”

Lists have been published 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, etc.”

Nurses, of course, have their own list! Here is one “Top Ten Reasons You Should Date a Nurse” list, courtesy of a group on Facebook:


They can help you get over a hangover or sickness.


Bed baths!


The uniform.


They are exposed to so many X-rays, it’s like a form of birth control.


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


They know how to handle bodily fluids!


Nothing shocks a nurse–they have seen smaller or bigger!


They won’t be disgusted by your toilet habits.


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


They know how to handle the human body.

  1. I have read this unsolicited online publication because it is there. It is a break from the ones that provide technical and educational information. However, I was offended by the article “10 Reasons to Date a Nurse.” I work in an OR and sometimes have to wear heavy lead for the entire shift to protect me from X-ray. So its better because I have less chance to get pregnant – are you serious? The uniform – really? Nurses are thieves – stealing hospital supplies? Manual evacuation – very poor taste! I am an older nurse, one who is thankful NOT to be on Facebook. I’ll speak to others in person. Old school social interaction. IMAGINE THAT!
