According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 91% of registered nurses are female while a mere 9% are male. That’s a pretty staggering statistic.
Even though gender equality is headline news recently, there still exists a very strong, traditional perception that the female is the primary caretaker. Which is very interesting considering that up until the early 1900s, men dominated the nursing field.
It was in 1901 when times started changing, as men were no longer permitted to serve as nurses and therefore started the feminization of the nursing profession. It wasn’t until 1955 that males were allowed to join the nursing profession again.
The good news is that today, many men and women choose to join the nursing field and bring care and compassion to patients.
Help Dismantle Old Stereotypes
People often assume when they see a man in medical scrubs, that he’s a doctor.
It’s not right that men have to battle these stereotypes – that they can’t be as compassionate or provide the same care for an ill patient. A well-trained male nurse can provide the same quality and level of care as an equally trained female nurse.
Anyone can be a healthcare worker and anyone is capable of being caring. By choosing a career that disregards current societal norms you’re helping to break apart a stereotype that never should have existed to begin with.
