The nursing profession has been dominated by women since its existence. Now, there is a steady stream of new male nurses trying to make a long lasting career in the field. While many of them are successful, there is a stigma that male nurses may not be as passionate and understanding as their female counterparts – or worse – not marketable.
Let’s begin tearing down male nursing myths to see why nursing is a great career choice for both men and women.
The age old myth that only women can be nurses is one that is purely a fallacy. While 3.2 million women were in the field in 2011, 330,000 men were also employed as nurses. These figures have been slowly climbing year after year with more and more male nurses being seen in the field. As of 2012, 9.6 percent of all nurses in the United States were male. In comparison, only 6 percent of the industry’s nurses were men in 2006, and only 3% as far back as 1980.
Marketability is always a concern for male nurses. While many will find work directly from their internship, others fear that they will not find employment as easily as their female counterparts. Unemployment data says otherwise. According to the Wall Street Journal, “Among licensed practical nurses, the only category with meaningful levels of unemployment, men had an unemployment rate of 4%” versus 7.2% nationwide.
The pervasive myth that nursing is about emotional bedside counseling stems more from tradition in gender roles and depictions in the movies than from the profession itself. Nursing is a high energy, mentally and physically demanding profession that taps into all strengths of ones’ personality. While bedside manner and an emotional connection with patients are paramount, they’re not the only prerequisites for outstanding nursing. Not to mention, men enter nursing for the same reason women do, to provide the best possible health care for their patients. That’s not a gender-specific trait!
The final myth on the list is entrenched in many people’s minds, but is simply not true. Most patients that see a male nurse are under the assumption that they somehow failed in med school . As with female nurses, this is simply not the case. While some nurses (male and female) do aspire to become doctors, the majority of professional nurses do not go into the nursing field with the intention of becoming a doctor.
Male nurses, like female nurses, have a choice to go into another healthcare career. They have chosen nursing to be a nurse, complete with all the tradition and respect nursing positions command.
If you’re male and considering a career as a nursing professional, contact our admissions office with any questions you have about the specific challenges men face as healthcare professionals.
