I’ve been in the healthcare field for over fifteen years. One thing I’ve noticed is that medical doctors and nurses go together like peanut butter and jelly, rice and beans, me and chocolate. A seemingly good combination right? Hmmmm.
My apologies to the 24% of doctors who don’t fit into this category (my statistics only), but for the most part doctors are players, at least during their early residency years. Perhaps as they become more mature they settle down, but until then, watch out nurses.
I have one line in Midwife to Destiny where Ora makes a comment to her cousin, Esi about dating doctors.
“You remember what Dr. Miller said once? ‘Student nurses are incentives.’”
I’m sad to inform you that this is a real quote taken from an actual doctor. My jaw dropped when I heard him say it. I knew that doctors were bad, but not that bad.
Doctors tend to be portrayed as players who dally with nurses in movies and television shows such as ER and Grey’s Anatomy. In my opinion, the writers get these wild character attributes from more than just their imaginations.
I may rag on doctors, but I love ‘em (in a platonic manner). As I mentioned before, not all of them use women. They just won’t date my daughter until after they’ve completed residency and finished sowing their wild oats.
What's your opinion?
