15 Reasons to Date a Nurse

by Eharmony Editorial Team - February 6, 2014

So you have a crush on a nurse. We say stop nursing that crush — pardon the pun — and ask him/her out! Here are our 15 reasons to date a nurse:

1. Nurses are compassionate

They’re also patient, authentic and are often great listeners.

2. Nurses are super-smart

If you’re into both brains and beauty, your date can deliver.

3. They’ll help your hangover

Let an actual nurse work his/her feel-better magic.

4. Nurses have seen bodies of all shapes and sizes

They’ve also witnessed every kind of bodily function imaginable. Your insecurities and body quirks will likely leave your date unfazed.

5. No waiting in line

You’ll get a quick diagnosis every time you feel under the weather.

6. The uniform

It’s not just sexy on Halloween. (Translation: those scrubs just look so cute and comfy.)

7. Impressive nerves

Nurses remain calm and collected in pretty stressful situations. You want to be dating a nurse in times of emergency and chaos.

8. Nurses work long hours

So if you want a little alone time, a nurse’s crazy schedule might suit you just fine. (Also, with odd hours come odd date times. Monday afternoon might become the new Friday night.)

9. They make great future parents

No pressure or anything.

10. You’ll be safe

Date a nurse and you’ve got instant access to CPR, safety advice and disease-prevention tips.

11. Awesome “How was your day?” stories

Nurses have endless tales of patient and/or doctor drama.

12. You’ll start to understand medical jargon

Watching your favourite medical dramas just got entertaining.

13. Nurses will love your thoughtful gestures

They give to others all day and can often feel unappreciated.

14. They understand selflessness

One of the key ingredients to a healthy relationship.

15. Your date saves lives

That’s brag-worthy.
