David’s desire to serve

POLOKWANE –  Defying age-old stereotypes, 28-year-old David Magodi is a male nurse employed at a hospital in Polokwane who loves working with people. He was born and raised in Ga-Semenya, Limpopo.

“While growing up I learned to love people and always aimed to help them, even if I did not know them personally.”

He s a father of a loving son who lives with his mother and her parents.

He loves spending time with his son and the mother of his child, enjoys hanging out with his friends in his home town, and listening to good music and dancing.

David studied ancillary nursing in Polokwane at a nursing college where he graduated. “It is rare to find male nurses because people expect only female nurses, they also have the perception that if a man is a nurse, then he must be sexually different, which is untrue. Being a male choosing nursing as a career does not mean it will change your sexuality. It is a passion and a career that I chose because I love helping and interacting with people. I’m still the same person I was when I started in this profession, I am still a father.

“I advise males who are interested in pursuing a career in this field to follow their dreams, and not allow anyone to deter them from doing what they are passionate about,” he added. In many health institutions, 95% of the nursing staff are female. David believes that as long as men stop having negative attitudes, the image can change with time. “A very good example is that nowadays we see many women doing construction work, so nothing should stop males doing what they are passionate about, all because of what people might think of us.”

In conclusion, he said nursing is not just something you suddenly start doing, he explained caring for people takes commitment, comes from the heart and takes hard work and dedication.
