Men in American Nursing History:"The purpose of these pages is to provide an overview of the history of men in nursing with an emphasis on men in the Americas. The word "nurse" was not used until the thirteenth century. It originated from the Latin term to nurture. Translations of non-English works prior to the early 1900's typically used the term "nurse" when referring to male health care providers. More recent translations use the term "attendant," because it was thought that only females could be "nurses." These pages will use the term "nurse"."

Category: Male Nurses, Men In Nursing

****************************************************

Men at Work, By Cathryn Domrose, August 27, 2003, Nurseweek:"Thanks in part to campaigns designed to appeal to masculine sensibilities, more men are entering nursing—and discovering the joys of a profession traditionally dominated by women At the most recent American Nurses Association annual convention, Gene Tranbarger, Ed.D., RN, saw signs that times might finally be changing for men in nursing: They were on the bathroom doors. Tranbarger, president of the American Assembly for Men in Nursing, has attended ANA conventions since the late 1950s. "One of the first actions was to declare all the bathrooms female," he said-a common practice at conventions of any group where most members are women. Men had to go to their hotel rooms or into another building to use the facilities, he said."

Category: Gender Discrimination, Male Nurse Bias In Nursing

****************************************************

Men in nursing: issues of gender segregation and hidden advantage. J Adv Nurs. 1999 Feb;29(2):523. Evans J.:"The small but growing number of men in the nursing profession does not herald a progressive integration of masculine and feminine sex roles. The evidence presented in this paper suggests that even in female-dominated occupations such as nursing, patriarchal gender relations which reflect a high valuation of all that is male and masculine, play a significant role in situating a disproportionate number of men in administrative and elite specialty positions. At the heart of this gender dynamic is the need to separate the masculine from the lesser valued feminine."

Men In Nursing, Minoritynurse.com:"However, that was almost 40 years ago, some may argue. Certainly the bias and prejudices toward men in nursing that existed at that time no longer exist. Right? Wrong, according to Gene Tranbarger, Ed.D., R.N., CNAA, associate professor of nursing at East Carolina University in Greenville, N.C. "Open discrimination against men is fast disappearing from schools of nursing but remains imbedded in the school fabric," he observes. "The faculty still relies on feminine pronouns when discussing nurses. Male nurses who wish to work in obstetrics/gynecology still face obstacles and often have to resort to legal remedies."

Menstrual Cycles: What Really Happens in those 28 Days?! Feminist Women's Health Center:"Have you ever wondered about the connection between your body's 28 day cycle and the cycle of the moon? Here's the theory. In the days before electricity, women's bodies were influenced by the amount of moonlight we saw. Just as sunlight and moonlight affect plants and animals, our hormones were triggered by levels of moonlight. And, all women cycled together. Today, with artificial light everywhere, day and night, our cycles no longer correspond to the moon. This article is dedicated to exploring menses: fact and fiction, then and now."

Menstruation, Epigee, Women's Health:"Problems With Your Cycle: Having your period can be a real pain, in more ways than one. If you suffer from menstrual cramps, read up on why women feel such pain every month. You'll also get some handy tips on how to get rid of those menstrual cramps. But cramps don't only occur when you have your period. Women who notice period-like cramps half-way through their cycle may have mittelschmerz, a type of cramping that happens when you ovulate. However, if your menstrual cramps are so intense that you regularly experience severe pain, then you may actually have dysmenorrhea."
