Do male nurses impact nursing profession?

Do you think male nurses are instrumental to the transformation needed in the nursing profession. If yes, inwhich way do you think they can contribute?

Nursing is all about decision making, coordinating and leadership.... Males are better in those activities

Yes..
Our sociocultural environment has in a few way limited the rearing of females as secondary individuals expected to yield to men or husbands in their respective environment. This has been transferred to professional practice. The autonomy has been limited. But males on the other hand have a level of assertion that has made the little difference in practice and autonomy.. I must add though, some males are now even worse .. Some develope inferiority complex and change their profession or just their numeclature(Dr)

Yes........ the presence of male nurses in nursing has impacted positively on nursing and has added a musculine touch to the profession.

The history of nursing is almost exclusively a history of women's accomplishments despite the fact that, as early as the fourth and fifth centuries, men have worked as nurses. This perpetuates the notion of men nurses as anomalies. It also provides insight into the gendered nature of nursing and nurses' work within patriarchal cult.

Men's participation in nursing reveals that prevailing definitions of masculinity have acted as a powerful barrier to men crossing the gender divide and entering the profession. At extraordinary times such as war and acute nursing shortages, gender boundaries are negotiable. For those men who have crossed over into nursing, a gendered division of labour is evidenced by men nurses' long-standing association with mental health nursing and, more recently, with their disproportionate attainment of masculine-congruent leadership and specialty positions.

Failure to recognize men's participation in nursing leaves men nurses with little information about their professional background and historical position. It also maintains the invisibility of gender relations that have shaped the experience of men and women nurses alike. Such relations, understood within their broader social context, remain poorly understood and hence uninterrupted, to the detriment of nurses and the profession of nursing.
Nursing is not just an ART, it has a heART. Nursing is not just a SCIENCE, but it has a conscience
