We are exploring the possibility of opening a Bellingham Technical College chapter of American Association of Men in Nursing.
We envision this to be a student led group with Faculty (me!) assisting in an advising capacity
The American Association for Men in Nursing
To shape the practice, education, research, and leadership for men in nursing and advance men’s health.
To be the association of choice representing men in nursing.
The purpose of AAMN is to provide a framework for nurses, as a group, to meet, to discuss and influence factors, which affect men as nurses.
AAMN Objectives include
• Encourage men of all ages to become nurses and join together with all nurses in strengthening and humanizing health care.
• Support men who are nurses to grow professionally and demonstrate to each other and to society the increasing contributions being made by men within the nursing profession.
• Advocate for continued research, education and dissemination of information about men’s health issues, men in nursing, and nursing knowledge at the local and national levels.
• Support members’ full participation in the nursing profession and it’s organizations and use this Association for the limited objectives stated above.
• Membership is open to any nurse – male or female – to better facilitate discussion and to meet the most important objective of AAMN – strengthening and humanizing health care.
• Membership in the association is available through our online portal (see below) and elections, provided to Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurses, entry level nursing students, and anyone the Board Deems worthy of Membership.
• AAMN membership is unrestricted by consideration of age, color, creed, handicap, sexual orientation, lifestyle, nationality, race, religion, or gender.
I have presumptively reserved a meeting space for an initial informational meeting.
Date: November 12 – Tuesday
Time: 3 – 5 PM
Location: Bellingham Technical College – Haskell Center 103
If there is interest to continue, we can discuss future meeting times.
Thanks in advance for your consideration and interest.
