Men in Nursing

The Men in Nursing group is a safe and welcoming place for any member who identifies as a man. We invite you to join us as we strive to dismantle harmful gender stereotypes while acting in solidarity with our equity-seeking colleagues towards a more just and inclusive union and workplace. 

The caucus 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.


Movember

The international campaign helps to make a difference by fundraising for three of the largest health issues facing men: mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Matthew Le Gresley, Provincial Chair of BCNU's Men in Nursing group is calling on all members to support the union’s Movember team in its efforts to draw attention to the very real challenges of emotional, mental, and physical health concerns for men. Join the team, donate, grow a moustache (“mo”), or organize some friends to get MOving and spread the word that #MentalHeathMatters! Sign up to join the team here.
