KSN Men in Nursing

The American Assembly for Men in Nursing is a national organization open to male and female nurses and nursing students. AAMN strives to strengthen and diversify nursing by increasing the visibility of men in the profession. This is achieved through a variety of programs, including scholarships and award programs, continuing education programs, and student mentorship programs. The organization was originally founded in 1974 in Chicago and now has 65 chapters and over 1,000 members nationwide. By most estimates, men make up only about 5-10% of all nurses, but AAMN hopes to raise the number to 20% by the year 2020.

KSN Men in Nursing is the only chapter of AAMN in the state of Oklahoma.  The chapter seeks to address the following objectives.

  • Foster fellowship among KSN male nursing students
  • Support the careers of male nurses in the Oklahoma City area
  • Discuss issues of particular concern to men in nursing
  • Promote the profession of nursing to men
  • Provide mentorship and guidance
  • Recruit and retain male nurses
  • Improve nursing skills
