The word “nurse” has a long and deep cultural association with women. Now as more men enter the profession, American Sentinel University says the addition of more male nurses will benefit the patients they serve, their fellow nurses and the nursing profession, citing a recent report issued by the Institute of Medicine (IOM).

“Men are minorities in the nursing profession and it’s critical that we recruit more men into the nursing ranks to address the greater need for a more diverse nursing workforce,” says Christopher Kowal, DNP, MSN-MOL-Ed, BS, RN, CCRN-CMC-CSC, STTI-Chi Alpha Treasurer and adjunct professor of nursing at American Sentinel University. “It’s important that nursing diversification mirror what is happening in our population. Men provide unique perspectives and skills that are important to the profession and reflect the quality of care delivered.”
