Named a 2013 PROSE Award Honorable Mention in Nursing and Allied Health Sciences



Winner of the Dr. Gene Tranbarger Writing Award from the American Assembly for Men in Nursing

Though O'Lynn emphasizes a male perspective on becoming a nurse, this book should be required reading for anyone thinking about entering the nursing profession....The section on nursing education from the perspective of both students and instructors is worth the price of the book....Highly recommended."--Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries

"I love this book. It has inspired and motivated me to continue to do something for men in nursing at the college where I teach as well as for men in our delivery rooms and postpartum units. We need to move beyond women and children and include men as fathers to truly promote wellness for families."

--Janet Ierardi, MSN, RNC, CNE
Assistant Professor
Family Focused Nursing
Lawrence Memorial/Regis College Nursing Program

This is a nuts and bolts guide to a career in nursing--from the earliest consideration of a nursing career through education and clinical practice--designed specifically for men. Written by the author of Men in Nursing: History, Challenges and Opportunities, it was created at the request of numerous colleagues for a book that addressed the practical needs and concerns of men throughout their nursing career journey.

The text presents the numerous career paths available in nursing along with a consideration of their financial benefits, job security, personal fulfillment, and the need for nurses who are adept at information management and high tech-skills. The history of nursing is discussed through biographies of nine remarkable male nurses, offering much needed historical role models. The guide discusses strategies for dealing with a rigorous nursing curriculum compounded by the challenges of anti-male sentiment that is sometimes present. It takes the reader from day one of nursing school through the licensing exam and also addresses the specific needs of second-degree and accelerated program students. The book discusses the obstacles that may result from cross-gender nursing communication and relationships with a focus on teamwork. Also covered are professional development and leadership concerns in light of criticism from some women that men advance for self-serving reasons or "on the backs" of women colleagues.

Key Features:

  • Discusses how to navigate the rigors of nursing school along with strategies for success
  • Explains how cope with anti-male sentiment
  • Describes how to create an application that stands out from the pack
  • Helps male students to boost caring skills and touch patients in ways that reflect professionalism, empathy, and skill
  • Includes helpful advice for landing a first job
