This collaborative project between two gender equality centres and two universities looks at the underrepresentation of men in nursing in the Nordic countries. Men make up only 2 % of nurses in Iceland, 3,5 % in Denmark, and 9 % in Norway. To advance gender equality in work life, it is important to increase the number of men in caring professions.
The project partners will map institutional practices and interview faculty, administration, and students at selected nursing programs in Iceland, Denmark, and Norway. Based on the findings, we will develop recommendations for recruiting and retaining men in nursing education. The results will be shared in a report and journal article in 2018.
