In Ghana today, female nurses are perceived as high-maintenance or promiscuous.
When a woman enrolls in nursing or midwifery school, her image is altered, no matter how chaste she is.
The average Ghanaian nursing student is curvaceous and attractive. Guys are drawn to women with curves like flies.
The attractive student nurses, who were surrounded by men, created the impression that they were promiscuous.
This misunderstanding was fueled by a viral tweet by Twitter user Kay Poison. “If you want serenity in your life, don’t date a pretty Ghanaian nurse,” he said in the statement.
It makes no difference whether or not this is correct. What can Ghanaian nurses do to combat stereotyping?
If you really want to have peace in life, Dont Date a Pretty Nurse from Ghana
