Abstract

 

I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your coverage of men in nursing. As an assistant professor of nursing, I'm always seeking the latest evidence-based information about why men choose nursing as a career.

 

I'm definitely one of those men who routinely praises nursing. I tell my students that I feel like someone who struck it rich during the California gold rush-except that I struck career gold!! Nursing has allowed me many life-enhancing experiences that have made me a better person. I wish more of us could put aside the bravado and see nursing for the great opportunities it offers to all.

 

Oh, and my wife, who's also an RN, says we make great hubbies too.
