[Research Presentation] Faculty at a state university in the Mississippi Delta identified a larger than average percentage of men in enrolled in the baccalaureate nursing program. The national average of men in nursing is 3 percent and the number of male nursing students enrolled in this program was closer to 20 percent. In order to study this phenomenon, a group of nurse scientists proposed a research project utilizing qualitative methods. First, a questionnaire was administered to all undergraduate males in order to collect data regarding motivating factors for pursuing a career in nursing. Themes were identified and a proposal was written for further phenomenological investigation utilizing intensive interviewing of 6 of the male subjects selected purposively. This study is on-going. The investigators hope to use the information obtained to further understand motivating factors of men in nursing. If this phenomenon is fully understood, it is the hope of the investigators, that men, as an untapped resource, may be one possible solution for the current nursing shortage faced by the United States.
