Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is the definitive volume on men in nursing and describes how to position them to become nurses, to assume leadership positions, to seek and receive mentoring, and to make a difference in the workforce. It provides a historical context, describes barriers, and recommends strategies for the future. This volume should be required reading for faculty,deans, and CNOs as well as any courses on professionalism and leadership. Guidance counselors and admission officers,who tend to steer men and women away from the nursing profession, should also read this. While the lived experience of Chris Coleman and of the chapter authors enriches each chapter, the history of data and the practical recommendations make the book a reader-friendly classic. This book will be a milestone and a turning point for balancing gender in schools of nursing and the health workforce.

The appalling lack of diversity in our profession continues to fuel our contentment with the status quo and lack of forward momentum. Christopher Coleman and colleagues enter this critical dialog with pragmatic support for men who are considering or currently navigating a career in nursing. The first-hand narratives will assist many men in finding their voice within our profession and provide all a deep understanding of the richness that comes with diversity.

I find it very insightful and informative for a male that is changing careers into nursing. I'm sure I will acquire a mentor in my journey but this book is a good start.

every male nurse should read this, and the author is correct in his experiences. Many of them mirror my own as a male nurse. Thanks
