CHICAGO, March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Resurrection University's Thinking Out Loud Speaker Series is proud to present Men in Nursing on Saturday, April 8 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. at its Wicker Park campus located at 1431 N. Claremont in Chicago. This free event is open to the general public and to those interested in learning more about a career in nursing.
Resurrection University (ResU), a College of Nursing and a College of Allied Health, has an above-average enrollment of male nursing students and was recognized as a Best Nursing School for Men by the American Assembly of Men in Nursing (AAMN) in 2016. ResU's male nursing student enrollment ranges from 17%-22% each semester.
"We are committed to providing healthcare education to a diverse learning community at Resurrection University. More men are recognizing nursing as a fulfilling and challenging career path," said Resurrection University President, Therese A. Scanlan, EdD. "As a nursing institution that was founded over 100 years ago we're committed to continually advancing the profession, and to educating nurses to meet the current needs of a diverse patient population which includes more male nurses."
The panel will speak candidly about the challenges and rewards of being men in nursing, as well as any stigmas or stereotypes they may face in this role which is traditionally dominated by women. They each have a personal perspective about the benefits of their careers, and can discuss the technical and clinical skills they use daily in their roles.
Nursing has become one of the fastest growing healthcare careers for men - join us and discover why.
