Men in Nursing

Mission Statement

We work to inspire, educate, and provide for men of all ages and backgrounds a supportive and collaborative environment that advances their lives and careers as they honor their calling to become nurses and leaders in healthcare.

The Goal

Our goal is to provide a positive and educational environment for men to network with other male nurses and nursing students. Men in Nursing events raise awareness for men’s health issues while addressing challenges in the medical industry. These events provide a wonderful opportunity for students to meet and listen to WCU Alumni and professionals from community hospitals while learning more about the many nursing roles and career options available.

M      Mentor and foster working relationships with our male students and alumni

E       Educate students and further their knowledge of men’s health and nursing

N      Network with healthcare professionals to foster professional growth and recognize their contributions

The Vision

Our vision is to launch several Men in Nursing chapters and hold multiple events each year to advocate for continued research, share information about men’s health at the local and national level, and support the local healthcare community.

When you look back at the history of nursing, it's a dominant female population and now more men are stepping into this profession. I think it's important for the kids to also see men be their caretaker.*
