Men in Nursing

In conjunction with the Coalition for Nursing Careers in California (CNCC), CINHC is on a campaign to recruit men into nursing. California Bureau of Registered Nursing data reflects that an estimated 5–7% of the total working nurses in the state are men. In contrast, 30–35% of nurses in the military are men. This project and campaign seek to increase the number of male RN’s. The Oregon Center for Nursing launched a major campaign a few years ago and significantly raised the number of male nurses. We also hope to learn from the work that Oregon has completed and apply those learnings to this important project.
