Those interested in becoming a nurse, can pursue several educational options based on their career goals and level of care they hope to provide. There are three main categories of nurses. #Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) provide basic care while supervised by registered nurses and doctors. #Registered nurses (RNs) care for patients, provide support to patient’s families, and assist doctors in medical procedures. Additional education can lead to further specialization as an advanced practice registered nurse. Educational programs in nursing are typically found in both public and private colleges, technical schools, and universities. Some hospitals and high schools offer them as well. In addition to liberal arts courses, nursing programs require students to take courses related to the field such as biology, physiology, chemistry, and anatomy. All nursing programs contain a supervised clinical component, and graduates of these programs must pass a licensing exam to begin work. There is no bar for men from undergoing these programs.

When the Institute of Medicine’s original report on the future of nursing was released it outlined a future full of opportunity and with the challenge for all nurses to practice to the full extent of their education and scope. Over the last several decades, much has occurred to elevate the practice and value of the #Registered Nurses. Patient needs have become more complex and quality and patient safety are now the front and center of reimbursement and regulatory landscapes. Nurses have adapted to these changes by expanding their skill sets and knowledge of science, securing their places as linchpins to provision of improved health outcomes in the era of healthcare reform.

Nursing is a profession both defined by science, as well as art. The terms art and science are significant for the practice of nursing. These two concepts have a particular meaning and their defining characteristics help to illuminate the nature of nursing practice. An understanding of each term is foundational to the comprehension of similarities and differences and to an understanding of the complex relation played out in nursing practice. Nursing as an art form has three major components—medium, process, and product. The science consists of the systematized knowledge. Both nursing's art and its science are essential for excellence in the performance of nursing's mission. There is a delicately balanced movement between art and science portrayed by experienced nurses that transcends as it uses the differences between these two forms.

The number of male nurses in the nursing profession is very less relatively. There is a huge shortage of male nurses in the sector and the level of public awareness in this regard is less. People still hold the idea that males in the nursing sector are effeminate. This is a common notion that prevails in the minds of many people and this is one factor that deters aspiring male students from becoming certified nurses in the industry. The nursing profession has been traditionally associated with the female gender. Patients still can relate and connect to female patients more than males. These disadvantages of Men in Nursing hold fast.

According to the latest statistics, male nurses represent just a small fraction of the nursing workforce. The number of male nurses in the nursing profession is roughly around 5 %. The popular notion that nursing is not for men and admission capacity constraints of Nursing Schools seem to be major obstacles towards bringing more men to the profession. Although male nurses often face the challenges of gender discrimination, especially in specialties like obstetrics and gynecology, where, women often prefer female nurses, male nurses often end up in leadership roles and in specialties like intensive care, emergency and operating room nursing. Attitudes, gender role perceptions, intimate care issues, nurse shortage, retention and motivation influence the professional presence of men in nursing

Men still constitute a small minority of the nursing population. Although the reason has been identified, barriers that deter men from entering the profession, nursing schools and other stakeholders have been conservative in their efforts to recruit men. Active recruitment of young men may be a means of addressing nursing shortages. If nursing is to survive, affirmative action is needed to close the gender gap. More schools for men and more campaigns are needed to be organized.
