    Men in Nursing

After a successful career in mechanical engineering, including serving as a Director of Engineering in a hospital, I felt that I could combine my technical background with patient care, and chose to pursue nursing. I'm glad I did! Nursing school was an interesting experience, and having the additional education and cross-training makes me more valuable in the marketplace. Now, through nursing, I feel that I am afforded new horizons and have the credentials to support me. Nursing is a wonderful career for males as well as females and I encourage any male to look past any stereotypes and to pursue a career in nursing. P.S. I also found my beautiful wife through nursing! Nursing... it works!
