Welcome to the Mennonite College of Nursing M.E.N. Group! M.E.N. is an acronym to impress that MCN Men are Excellent Nurses.
The M.E.N. Group is a focus group primarily for men nursing students to provide networking and information to support a student’s career in the profession of nursing.
As a male in the nursing profession, have you ever asked...
• Who are the men of Mennonite College of Nursing (students, alumni, and faculty)?
• What does it mean to be a man in a profession where the majority is women?
• When do men have an opportunity to voice their thoughts and concerns about issues affecting men in this profession?
The MCN M.E.N. Group meets once a month during the fall and spring semesters. The group explores the history of men in nursing, and invokes discussion about clinical and social issues men encounter as a minority in the profession. The group provides an open discussion of thoughts and experiences plus phone and teleconferences from authors and alumni.
All meetings will be held from 11:30 am to 1:30 p.m. in Edwards Hall, Conference Room 112C on the first floor. You are invited to drop in on any part or all of the meetings. Interested female nursing students are invited as guests of a male nursing student. This is not an exclusive group.
Michael Gnidovec: Breaking barriers with MCN's RN to BSN
"Gnidovec knew he wanted to do more with his nursing career, so he began looking into RN to BSN programs and exploring the possibility of getting his bachelor’s degree in nursing. "
Justin Johnson: Accelerated BSN and Navy Officer
"Johnson found Mennonite College of Nursing (MCN) to be a great fit for a second bachelor’s degree that would give him plenty of options for avenues to pursue in the future."
