Men in Nursing

​​​​​​​​​​​As a man working in the nursing profession you may face some unique challenges.

By taking on a non-traditional role, you may face gender-based bias. While many more men are entering nursing today, the prevailing view is that nursing is still a 'female occupation'.

The Men in Nursing group works to break down outdated stereotypes. It encourages more men to enter the profession and to become more active in our union​. It meets twice a year, with one representative coming from each BCNU region. For more information on the roles and responsibilities of a caucus regional representative, please click here​. If you represent your region within the Men in Nursing group, and would like to request funding from BCNU to further the group's goals and initiatives, please complete the Regional Caucus Funding Request Form​​.

For more information or to get involved contact the chair or Hanif Karim,  Human Rights, Equity and Health Policy Officer. 


BCNU's Men in Nursing group annually supports Movember, a fall event that raises funds and awareness for men’s mental health, suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Congratulations to the 2021 team for raising $1,595.
