Still, the nursing profession needs to do more to speed up the gender diversification and inclusion of the workforce, the IOM report states. “While more men are being drawn to nursing education, especially as a second career....

Antwain Harps's insight:

The nursing profession is trying to get rid of the old misconception about being a male nurse. “Nursing school deans, faculty and male nursing leasers are developing innovative, stereotype-busting recruitment strategies in the hopes of eventually making the number of men in nursing more comparable to the number of women who are now sizeable presences in traditionally male fields like medicine and law,” says Debra Williams. In earlier generations, men that decided to go to nursing school had obstacles to cross, like gender discrimination from female instructors and students, couldn’t have access to clinical training in areas like obstetrics and gynecology, and lack of family and friends who perceive nursing as a women career. In order to break the barriers that men face when trying to become a nurse, nursing schools should try making efforts to provide them with equal opportunities given to other students in the program. Female student nurses should treat male student nurses no differently than they would with anybody else. Friends and family members should try to be more supportive and not be judgmental when they make the decision about their career choice.

This a very interesting article because I always thought that there's more men doing nursing than women but as it turns out men account for 50% of the population, only about 7.9% of registered nurses in the U.S. are male. But those numbers are beginning to rise as nursing schools around the country keep reaching out to recruit more male students into their programs

Antwain Harps's insight:

Nursing has come a long way from what it used to be a long time ago. Nursing is a fast paced growing career that many people, especially men, are realizing that they are great opportunities that you can accomplish just from being a nurse. Schools are doing better in recruiting more men than ever to get into nursing school and getting them to stay even with most of the barriers disappearing. In the twenty-first century, there is no such thing as a female dominated career or male dominated career. Hopefully one day, it will be as much equal men in nursing as there are female.

Antwain Harps's insight:

The numbers are growing for men in nursing, but the numbers are still low compared to females. Nursing offers a variety of rare combination of job security and fast paced pumping excitement. In the nursing field, you are not stuck with just one job. They can choose from plenty of opportunities for career advancement, high-paying nurse executive, and positions as nurse scientist. The military provides opportunities for nurses to become heroes on the battlefield, but the numbers are still low.

Is it hard for a male to get into nursing school?

Is it hard for a male to get into nursing school? | Nursing | Scoop.it

I don't think that is true at all. It is my experience that men in nursing school education tend to have higher GPA's to begin with and have hopes of either being a NP or CRNA. I don't think it is a quota that needs to be meet as much is it is that male nursing students tend to be more career orientated...

There Are More Male Nurses and They're Getting Paid Way More Than Their Lady Colleagues

There Are More Male Nurses and They're Getting Paid Way More Than Their Lady Colleagues | Nursing | Scoop.it
There are more male nurses than ever before, and — naturally — they're making more money than their female peers, according to a new nationwide study.

Antwain Harps's insight:

            More men are seeking jobs in the nursing community. According to the Census Bureau study published in 2011, men account for 9.6% of all nursed, which is up from 2.7% in 1970s. There is a huge shortage in the nursing field, and many people are recruiting males to become nurses with higher pay and incentives. The reason why they are so many male nurses now compared to in the 1970s because healthcare jobs have been enjoying lower unemployment rates than other industries like construction and manufacturing. Even with the huge leap of male nurses, ninety-one percent of nurses are female. Despite that men are outnumbered in the field, every dollar a male nurse earns, females earn ninety-one cents.

Antwain Harps's insight:

Over the last couple of years, men have started to go into fields that are dominated by women. Fields like dental assistants, hygienist, and nursing, where ninety percent of the workers are female; men are staying away from the construction and manufacturing jobs. Men are earning degrees in fields where it’s more stable, more difficult to outsource, and more likely to grow in the future. People are grasping the concept that the American dream is not about having mansions and luxury cars, but having a home, a college degree, financial security, and enough left over to have a little fun. More men are seeking female-dominated occupations because they are driven by financial concerns, quality of life issues, and a decrease of gender stereotypes.
