Southwestern Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Association for Men in Nursing

Chapter Founded: April, 2019
First Meeting: April, 2019

The purpose of the American Association of Men in Nursing (AAMN) is to provide a framework for nurses, as a group, to meet, to discuss and influence factors, which affect men as nurses. Our mission is to shape the practice, education, research, and leadership for men in nursing and advance men’s health. We invite anyone to participate who is interested in advancing the role of men in nursing. 

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.
