 Chat Details

 

Hosted by WeNurses using #WeNurses

This chat is guest hosted by @malestudntnurse @Ewout1985

Chief nursing officer for England Jane Cummings earlier in the year announced that she is embarking on a joint project with the RCN to improve the image of nursing. This must include initiatives to help attract more men into the profession, such as more male advocates going into schools and colleges to talk about nursing.

The number of male students offered places on pre-registration nursing programmes in the UK was 9.4% (University and Colleges Admission Service 2016). While the current percentage of males in the healthcare profession as nurses and healthcare assistants sits at between10-12%. It would be interesting to see if these numbers have altered since the loss of the bursary and the reports of nurses leaving the profession.

However, the image of nursing is still dominated by the stereotypical perceptions that the public holds. The ‘sexy nurse’ ‘stern matron’ male doctors and female nurses are a thing of the past, but still upheld by advertisement and Halloween costumes. Although the prominence of mixed-gender nursing on television is getting better and better, this isn’t being translated into the numbers of men applying to study nursing.

Looking forward to the future especially with the loss of the bursary surely this is a time to look at stereotypes and how we can change them. Other professions such as engineering and teaching have been working on the gender gap, so how can nursing as a profession close this gap?
