Abstract

 

Editor Bob Kepshire responds: I agree that many men dislike being described as "male nurses." But with men comprising only 5% to 6% of the nursing workforce, we really are a minority. The goal of Men in Nursing is to draw more men into the profession and to celebrate the men who are already there. We have no desire to cause a schism between men and women in the profession. I hope that all nurses will view this journal as a positive force for the future of nursing.
