Retrieved from http://bsntomsn.org/2009/10-most-famous-male-nurses-in-history/ Brother Gerard Dayle Kotarba- dk057512@ohio.edu Men are viewed as minorities in nursing and are faced with similar hardships as other minorities in nursing. Male nurses sometimes can feel unwanted and discouraged when being treated as a minority. (Mercer, T. 2010) Male nurses often feel the need to explain why they are nurses and not doctors - they find that people are understanding of them being a nurse, but may not understand at first. (Mercer, T. 2010) Some colleges have programs designed to help address and solve the issues with male nurses.
An example of this is The Male Association of Male Nurses - University of Pennsylvania. This program helps to recruit males nurses and help them cope with the stereotypes and stigma attached to working in a predominantly female work force.

~advocates for equal treatment of male nurses and works to dissipate gender biases and prejudices.

~They work to ensure that male nurses have every opportunity that their female counterparts do. According to O’Lynn (2006),
“Every professional nursing
position and every nursing
educational opportunity shall
be made available to those
meeting entry level qualifications
regardless of gender." ~created by Steve Miller, a nurse who saw a need for an organization to better serve men in the nursing profession.

~He invited Luther Christman into the group to assist them with the development of the organization.

~Shortly after, Steve Miller decided to go to law school and the organization didn't last without his leadership.

~Luther Christman started the AAMN back up in 1974. ~The AAMN offers scholarships to male nurses in their last year of an educational program leading to NCLEX-RN eligibility.

~They also award scholarship money to colleges designated by AAMN as "Best Schools or Colleges for Men in Nursing." ~available to any nurse, male or female, in order to better facilitate discussion and to meet the most important objective of AAMN – "strengthening and humanizing health care."

~Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, or anyone the board decides is fit for membership can join. American Assembly for Men in Nursing.
