In the United States there is currently a shortage of both nurses and nursing faculty. One part of this shortage is the low representation of minority groups, including men, in the profession. Although nursing was once a field dominated by males, today the profession has been feminized and males are underrepresented. A corresponding lack of male nursing faculty may contribute to the lower number of males in the profession as male nursing students do not find mentors and role models with whom they identify. Little research has been done regarding the factors that affect decisions of male nurses with graduate degrees to become and remain nursing faculty. Therefore, the researcher explored the lived experiences of male nursing faculty to develop a better understanding of factors that influenced their decision to become and remain faculty.
