[Clinical Session Presentation] This study examined the relationship between the method of entry into the nursing profession and job satisfaction of male registered nurses.  There are three methods of entry for men who enter into a female dominated profession: seeker, one who enters the profession by choice; finder, one who enters by convenience; and settler, one who enters as a second career.  Job satisfaction has six dimensions which include supervision, colleagues, pay, advancement, security, and opportunity. This study examined how male registered nurses compare in the six dimensions of job satisfaction when divided by method of entry.  In addition, the relationship between method of entry and area of work was studied. The population of this study was limited to male registered nurses who took part in the survey that was placed online in the Male Nurse Magazine website that has a global readership.  Of the total study participants of 249 male nurses, 234 (94 percent) were living and working in the United States, with 12 (4.8 percent) living outside of the United States.  This study used a survey with 32 items on a Likert scale that measured nurses? perceptions of the six dimensions of job satisfaction: supervision, colleagues, pay, advancement, security, and opportunity.The study revealed that there was no statistical significance between method of entry and the six dimensions of job satisfaction. In the dimensions of supervision, colleagues, pay, advancement, and opportunity, male registered nurses agree to somewhat agree that these dimensions are perceived as positive. For the dimension of advancement, male registered nurses somewhat disagree that advancement is perceived as positive.There was statistical significance between method of entry and years of experience.  The seekers had more years of experience than the settlers.  The finders had more years of experience than the settlers.  A statistical significance was found between method of entry and highest educational degree.  More settlers have a bachelors degree, more finders have a bachelors degree, and there were minimal differences for the seekers between associates, bachelors, and masters degrees. A significant difference was found between method of entry and area of work.  It was found that settlers tend to work in specialty units, while finders and seekers tend to work in administration.
