Men in Nursing

Throughout history, men have been involved in the caring arts. In the middle ages, various religious orders were formed, such as the Knights Hospitaller, the Knights of St John and the Knights of Lazarus. It has only been in recent years that nursing has been a profession dominated by women.

Today, young men are now taking advantage of the benefits of a nursing career as it still offers a challenging and rewarding career for those who continue to care for the sick and infirm.
