Men make up just 5 to 6 percent of the nurses in the US. Leaders in Patient Services decided to change things. Cincinnati Children's employs more than 100 men in nursing roles, with an active recruitment effort in place to attract even more.
Visit the local chapter of the American Assembly for Men in Nursing (AAMN). Bill Lecher, MBA, MS, RN, and several other male nurses at Cincinnati Children’s began the chapter in 2007 with the support of the hospital’s Department of Nursing Recruitment and Retention.
