1. Dwinnells, Mary Kathleen. Nurse Educators' Perceptions of Male Nursing Students in the Clinical Setting.

Degree: PhD, College and Graduate School of Education, Health and Human Services / School of Foundations, Leadership and Administration, 2017, Kent State University

Men have worked in the nursing profession throughout history, yet, the stereotypes and gender bias that male nurses experience still permeates society today. Indications of these may be responsible for the relatively minimal growth in the percentage of males choosing nursing as a career. Studies on nurse educators’ evaluative interactions and observations of male nursing students’ performance have not included those in a clinical setting, a critical component of nursing education. No research has provided insight into the nurse educators’ perceptions of male nursing students in these settings, although there is a plethora of literature focused on men in nursing. Thus, this study examined nurse educators’ perceptions of male nursing students in the clinical setting utilizing a multicase study design. Results of this study noted four prominent themes related to nurse educators’ perceptions: preconceived assumptions, the concept of caring, persisting gender stereotypes and the exploitation of physical strength. These findings indicate that nurse educators continue to perpetuate the lingering stereotypes and gender biases that have plagued males for decades. Implications for nursing education include engaging students in reciprocal dialogue, educating others about the differences in caring between genders, and critically reevaluating the curriculum in order to create a warm, fair, and educational environment that invites males into this profession. Advisors/Committee Members: Henderson, James (Committee Chair).
