Abstract

 

As an avid reader of your journal, I wanted to comment about your ad for a journal called Men in Nursing. I've read many times that men dislike being called "male nurses"; they say they're just nurses and don't want to be segregated into a special category. After all, is there a journal called Women in Nursing? All things being equal, this discriminatory journal sets our profession back 30 years.
