New York City Men in Nursing

The NYC Men in Nursing Group is an official chapter of the American Assembly for Men (AAMN).  We were formed in December of 2013 to support the personal and professional growth of men in nursing, to increase the number of male nurses in the profession, to address men's health issues, and more broadly, to advocate for the pursuit of healthy living on the individual, community, and national levels. As we foster the talents of our own members, perhaps we will learn a little more about ourselves, each other, and this dynamic city in which we live: New York City. 

What We Do

This group hosts monthly chapter meetings at the various hospitals and universities within the NYC area, where member hear about a variety of different topics from speakers who are experts in their fields. We've had topics such as:

  • Bullying in the work place
  • Male perspective of caring
  • Patient Safety
  • Breakthroughs in Cancer Care
  • And much more

In addition to our monthly meetings we also hold monthly social networking events for our members. And twice a year we have education conferences that offer CEUs for our members.
