Has Nursing Always Been Female Dominated Like Today (90+%)?
I had a discussion with a nursing friend (male nurse) and he said that he wouldn't be a nurse if he had the chance again due to often being asked to do things no other nurse wants (like getting the undesirable patients, doing the dirtier/nastier work, etc). He made an observation that I can't find any data on - in the past, men may have been more likely to be nurses because all jobs sucked in the past, such as dangerous farming or mining (much more dangerous than today). Relatively speaking, his point was nursing wasn't as bad comparatively in those times, thus more men would have been likely to do it.
In the United States, 92% of nurses are female, but I can't seem to find any data about male nursing 100 years ago, or even 50 years ago, even though nursing has been around a while. Is there any historic data of gender and nursing from 50-100 years ago as a comparative point?
