Fellas, your numbers are growing. According to data from the study Men in Nursing Occupations, the number of male LPNs and VPNs has more than doubled since 1970. And the number of male RNs has more than tripled.
Despite these awesome stats, the feedback we’ve received from our Men in Nursing Facebook audience tells us that it can still feel pretty lonely out there for a male nurse. We want to help you grow your male nurse brethren and suggest you start by following these gents on Instagram.
