Men in Nursing – the personal stories

Men from a wide variety of roles shared their experiences in the nursing profession in videos created at the 2019 Australian College of Nursing National Nursing Forum in Hobart. Each story is a unique, passionate and raw description of being a man in nursing.

Men in Nursing eBook

The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) is strongly dedicated to addressing the shortage of males in the nursing profession and promoting the benefits a nursing career can offer men. Our Men in Nursing eBook presents a powerful collection of the stories of 28 males who outline their experiences as nurses. We thank all the contributors for courageously telling their stories with such raw honesty and conviction.

ACN’s Men in Nursing Working Party, chaired by Luke Yokota MACN, is dedicated to improving the nursing workforce to allow for the greater retention and recruitment of men. The group has several objectives which raise awareness of issues associated with men in nursing. If you would like to contribute to their work, please contact
