Men in Nursing

How did you get into nursing?

I had a former friend who had a strong passion to enter the profession and I respected their passion so much I wanted to give it a try. Over time I was privileged to have mentors and friends who urged me to take more opportunities which allowed me to fall even deeper in love with – and even more more critical of – nursing. Being supported by this community of chosen family set off a spark in me to dedicate my time in our profession to empowering communities.

What advice do you have for those who are thinking about pursuing nursing?

Ask questions! Question the way our systems, practices, organizations, and methods are established. If we as individuals – and as a profession – are not being critical and calling out the problematic or oppressive aspects of nursing to improve how we provide care and empowerment at the individual & community/systemic level we are doing a disservice to everyone we are tasked to care for.

Give back Become a mentor for or teach the newer generations of nurses! Our experiences as students and new nurses are filled with trauma from our pre-existing systems – doing what we can to arm our future professionals to navigate these spaces is key for our growth.
