    This is a nuts and bolts guide to a career in nursing--from the earliest consideration of a nursing career through education and clinical practice--designed specifically for men. The book presents the numerous career paths available in nursing along with a consideration of their financial benefits, job security, personal fulfillment, and the need for nurses who are adept at information management and high-tech skills. The history of nursing is discussed through biographies of nine remarkable male nurses, offering much needed historical role models. The book also features strategies for dealing with a rigorous nursing curriculum compounded by the challenges of anti-male sentiment that are sometimes present in school and in practice. It takes the reader from day one of nursing school through the licensing exam and also responds to the specific needs of second-degree and accelerated program students. The professional development and leadership concerns of men seeking advancement in nursing are also addressed. Cover p. 4
