Hi, Chasade , Love reading your post! Working as a traveler, I see more and more male nurse working the floor in different areas. Sometimes there is only one on one unit. Men in nursing do face many obstacles and stereotypes sometimes, but they are slowly going away as new generations come into play and have different outlooks and feelings. There are male nurses in every nurse specialty from obstetrics to geriatrics to sexual assault examiners. According to an article is USA today, Among the more than 2 million registered nurses nationwide, about 10 percent are men, according to 2013 data, the most recent year studied. Census data show the gender gap in nursing has narrowed a little since 1970, when only about 3 percent of nurses were men (Tanner 2015)” With such a big gap, do you think that gender discrimination would become a bigger problem? Reference Tanner, L. (2015, March 25). Women dominate nursing field, yet men make more.
