1There are countless reasons why men choose to enter the profession of nursing he enjoys helping people, admires the compassionate philosophy of healthcare, and wishes to make a meaningful contribution to society. 2A male nurse loves to educate patients on healthier lifestyles, he wants to make a tangible contribution to his community. 3Nevertheless, many people still look down upon male nurses. 4 Despite male-oriented recruitment posters and other marketing efforts designed to dispel them, stubborn gender-based stereotypes are slow to fade. 5So nursing remain a predominantly female profession, with men only making up a miniscule percentage of the registered nurses in this country.
6How do men who move beyond the gender barrier, like the ones featured in this article, feel about nursing? 7Most of them approach the profession with utmost enthusiasm and passion. 8Their stories provide helpful insight for women, as well as other men, in the profession. 9Though the path isn't always easy for men in nursing; they still love the career path and are quick to encourage other men to join their ranks. 10Thomas Alston says, "If you're an autonomous person who's willing to break with traditional and cultural gender roles without significant regard for what others might say, then you should set your goals high and become a nurse." 11The implication that nurses are less important than physicians certainly annoy all nurse's. 12Another pet peeve that men and women in nursing share is the sense of disrespect they sometimes feel from physicians, physician assistants, and others in the medical field.
