Men in Nursing and Nursing School?
Men in nursing and nursing school? Many viewers have asked me if there are any men in nursing school and how males are as nurses. Therefore, I wanted to give my insight on this topic and encourage any males out there who are thinking about entering the nursing profession to do so. Nursing is an amazing career with so many opportunities for both males and females. The number of men entering the nursing profession is rapidly increasing every year, which in turn means more and more males are in nursing school. http://www.registerednursern.com/men-in-nursing-school/ Don't forget to check out my other videos about nursing school: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfVQok-t1X5ZMGgQr3IMBY9M Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=registerednursern Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RegisteredNurseRNs/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/registerednursern_com/ Nursing School Supplies: http://www.registerednursern.com/the-ultimate-list-of-nursing-medical-supplies-and-items-a-new-nurse-student-nurse-needs-to-buy/ Visit our website RegisteredNurseRN.com for free quizzes, nursing care plans, salary information, job search, and much more: http://www.registerednursern.com Check out other Videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/RegisteredNurseRN/videos All of our videos in a playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAhHxt663pU&list=PLQrdx7rRsKfXMveRcN4df0bad3ugEaQnk Popular Playlists: NCLEX Reviews: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfWtwCDmLHyX2UeHofCIcgo0 Fluid & Electrolytes: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfWJSZ9pL8L3Q1dzdlxUzeKv Nursing Skills: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfUhd_qQYEbp0Eab3uUKhgKb Nursing School Study Tips: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfWBO40qeDmmaMwMHJEWc9Ms Nursing School Tips & Questions" https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfVQok-t1X5ZMGgQr3IMBY9M Teaching Tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfUkW_DpJekN_Y0lFkVNFyVF Types of Nursing Specialties: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfW8dRD72gUFa5W7XdfoxArp Healthcare Salary Information: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfVN0vmEP59Tx2bIaB_3Qhdh New Nurse Tips: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfVTqH6LIoAD2zROuzX9GXZy Nursing Career Help: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfVXjptWyvj2sx1k1587B_pj EKG Teaching Tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfU-A9UTclI0tOYrNJ1N5SNt Dosage & Calculations for Nurses: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfUYdl0TZQ0Tc2-hLlXlHNXq Diabetes Health Managment: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQrdx7rRsKfXtEx17D7zC1efmWIX-iIs9

The robot-proof job men aren't taking
Nursing is the job of the future. So why have men stayed away? Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO It’s easy to imagine that the jobs of the future, if they even exist, will all revolve around technology. But it turns out, the jobs that are least likely to succumb to automation are those that involve building human relationships. The healthcare field is a prime example— nurses, physician assistants, and physical therapists have higher-than-average salaries and major expected job growth. These fields share something else in common— they’re dominated by women. Despite the erosion of traditionally “masculine” fields like manufacturing, men just aren’t taking these high-paying, in-demand healthcare jobs in the numbers you’d expect. For decades, nursing in particular has been considered “women’s work,” in part because it’s assumed that women, more so than men, have a kind of innate capacity for caring and empathy. But men in nursing say this mindset is holding us back. For them, caring and empathy are stills that can be developed, not traits someone is worth with or without based on their gender.

Mostly likely there is going to be a part 2.. when I first started off in nursing I felt a little weird because I so many people acted like it was something wrong with a male being a nurse..being in a field that was mostly women never worried me though because 80% of my friends are women..I always felt more comfortable around women so in that respect the nursing profession presented a plus in my life.lol....I was rasied with 2 sisters and mostly girl cousins.lol.

Males In Nursing Edition
MEN IN NURSING - LETS START THE CONVERSATION..... Although widely seen as a female profession as portrayed by the media, nursing is gradually becoming a more inclusive profession. Males make up around 10% of the taskforce in the UK, 6.4% of nurses in Canada, 23% of nurses in Iran, and in 2011 there are approximately 3.5 million nurses in the United States, and approximately 330,000 (9%) are male. (Wikipedia) There are several reasons suggested for a low uptake of nursing by males: stereotypes of nursing, lack of male interest in the profession, low pay, nursing job titles such as "Sister" or "Matron"and the perception that male nurses will have difficulty in the workplace carrying out their duties. This continuous "stereotyping" of male nurses has been widely attributed as the main reason for low intake of males into the profession. Unfortunately, unlike the campaigns and groups set up to increase and promote women's opportunities in medicine and surgery, there have been no comparable campaigns to increase the number of males in nursing. This week on the Nurses on Air Radio Show, we shall be shifting our focus to the hottest topic in town - "Males in Nursing". QUESTIONS FOR THE WEEK Why are men really scarce in Nursing? ? What has the implication been for Nigerian Nursing? What can be done to change this trend? SPECIAL GUESTS ON THE SHOW: 1. Aghedo princewill Member, LOC, Men in Nursing conference 2017 2. Emmanuel E.

University of Cincinnati seeks more men for nursing school
It's not uncommon to see a female doctor treating patients in the hospital, but some would say it's still unusual to see a male nurse. The University of Cincinnati is trying to change the image of nursing and attract more men. Gordon Gillespie is the interim associate dean of research at the UC School of Nursing. "I've been a nurse for 21 years and obviously I'm a guy in nursing, and we're kind of rare," he said. Statistics show women dominate the field, making up 91 percent of the U.S. nursing workforce. But there's a push to attract more men to the field. "The goal is to have 20 percent of the nursing workforce be men by 2020," Gillsepie said. Working toward that goal, UC is trying to recruit more male nursing students and debunk old stereotypes. "There's always going to be people out there that are going to go through and say, 'Oh, you're a guy in nursing?' But, it's just about knowing that I'm going to be there for the patient," sophomore Ryan Gehringer said. Junior UC nursing student Jack Stigler said he was attracted to the field because he loves science and anatomy. "The first thing I thought was, 'Oh, this would be an awesome job because it's the healthcare field," he said. About 20 percent of the nursing students at UC are men. But they'd like to see those numbers higher. They purposely include men in nursing school marketing materials and offer scholarships. The American Association of Men in Nursing has a chapter on campus. Students said they plan to hold recruiting events at local male high schools. "I take pride in being someone who's kind of changing that mindset in people, and it's been great so far," Stigler said.

Top 5 Highest Paid Nursing Specialties
Hey Guys, In this video, we will be exploring the top 5 highest paid nursing specialties. A quick disclaimer before this video starts, these numbers are obviously not exact. There are a million different variables that can go into determining someone’s salary including where you live, what hospital you work at, if you are unionized, seniority… I could pretty much go on forever. #5 on the list is a pediatric nurse specialist. The median salary of a pediatric nurse specialist is $89,000 If you love babies and kids, this could be the best job in the world for you, but it can just as easily be the worst job in the world for you. As with any healthcare setting, people don’t always make a miraculous recovery. The suffering of children and babies can put immense emotional stress on people however the recovery of these individuals can be exponentially more rewarding. If you are interested in working as a pediatric nurse, take a look at the pediatric nursing certification boards website for more information on how to become a Certified Pediatric Nurse (CPN). Moving on to number #4 on the list we have a Certified Nurse Midwife. The median salary for a certified nurse midwife is $96,970. If you enjoy the concept of pregnancy, labor and birth, becoming a certified nurse midwife could be perfect for you. Nurse Midwifes work with clients throughout their entire pregnancies and further. Visit the American midwifery certification board for more information on how to become a CNM. #3 on this list is a Nurse Practitioner with a median salary of $95,350. Nurse practitioners, as with many other nursing specialties, requires a significant amount of education after you have already become a registered nurse. Working as a nurse practitioner, you have the potential to be practicing in a clinic with a physician, or independently. Your scope of practice is far greater than a registered nurse. Nurse practitioners have the ability to prescribe medications, order tests, diagnose illnesses. As you can see, there are many similarities between nurse practitioners and physicians. An important thing to remember is that becoming a nurse practitioner requires a several years of experience as a registered nurse. Nurse practitioners are in growing demand due to their cost effectiveness for employers and it will be an interesting career path to watch for the future. #2 on the list is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with a median salary of $102,000 This is a specialty of nursing that requires an in-depth understanding of the human mind and forces that act upon it. If you are an individual with excellent communication skills, this could be the job for you. For more information of this specialty visit the American Psychiatric Nurses Associations website. #1 On the list is a nurse anesthetist with a median salary ranging from $147,000 to $162,000. A Nurse Anesthetist is by far the most financially lucrative specialty in the nursing profession. Nurse anesthetists are responsible for anesthetizing patients that are going to into surgery. It’s a role that requires a significant amount of responsibilities and as a result, it opens nurse anesthetists up to a world of possible legal trouble. If you can handle the stress and responsibility of being a nurse anesthetist, you will be fairly compensated for your work. For more information about this career path, visit the American association of nurse anesthetist’s website at AANA.com.
