M.E.N. In Uniform

The New York University Meyers College of Nursing Men Entering Nursing (MEN) Alumni

In nursing, the uniform has undergone major transformation, to favor comfort and workplace practicality over the formality (crinoline skirts, anyone?). For better or for worse, the nurse’s uniform fosters individual and collective recognition, pride, and identity. “Men in uniform” typically evoke images of military and police forces. Men and women in military uniform call to mind bravery and sacrifice. Here, we highlight MEN (Men Entering Nursing) in uniform to bring awareness of the duty, fidelity, authenticity, courage, and grace nurses bring to the workforce. MEN in uniform fights side-by-side with all genders to bring all our patients to safety.
