Men in Nursing
Methodist is proud to employ the highest percentage of male nurses in Nebraska, with turnover rates that are among the lowest in the state. We have dozens of male nurses in clinical leadership positions as Staff Preceptors and Charge Nurses. Our male nurses also participate on a number of committees throughout the health system, including Practice Council, Skin PI Committee, Fall PI Committee and the Leadership Committee.
“To strengthen the nursing profession, we need to break down gender-related biases and promote men in nursing. Male nurses can serve as preceptors, role models, and mentors for our future healthcare professionals as we continue to build a high-quality health care delivery system.”
Janice Morgan MSN, RN, CCRN, Service Executive of Medical/Surgical
Percentage of Male Nurses Employed
Turnover rates at Methodist are low, but especially low among our male nurse population. This demonstrates our commitment to hiring and retaining men in nursing roles within our facility.
