HE may not have to pace the hospital wards at night any more but nursing is still Andrew Daulby's job of choice.
A former butcher, Andrew is now the clinical services coordinator at Wallaroo Hospital.
And he is keen to change the image of nursing only being a "female occupation".
"You need to look beyond what people tradtitionally think of nursing," he said.
"The technology alone has changed massively since I started and once you become a registered nurse your employment opportunities are excellent."
With only five male nurses at Wallaroo - in South Australia 93 per cent of nurses are female - Andrew has found it harder to make lasting friendships but a new Yorke Peninsula group, Fellows In Nursing, has given him the chance to form strong bonds with other nursing blokes.
"The director of nursing at Maitland started the group three years ago and there is an open invitation for any male nurses who want to come along, it's a purely social group," he said.source
