This handsome men’s color-block scrub top is from Carhartt.

Men make up a little less than 10% of the nursing population, while just over 13% of the population in nursing schools are male. Their numbers are growing. And they are proving they can do the job as well as their female counterparts but male nurses still face discrimination.

About 70% of the male nurse population say stereotypes are their biggest challenge as nurses. Men who choose to be nurses are helping to break traditional health care stereotypes of male doctors and female nurses. They have to repeatedly prove that they can be as caring and nurturing as their female counterparts.

One area where they dominate is in the military. Men fill a third of military nursing positions.The poet Walt Whitman actually volunteered as a nurse during the Civil War.

Let’s face it, men who choose to become nurses are making a smart career choice. The demand for nurses continue to grow and starting salaries are high.

So we salute “murses” everywhere and welcome them in ever-increasing numbers to the demanding but rewarding nursing profession!
