Mandatory Overtime:

    Alaska: Monday, March 24, 2008: Nursing overtime spurs safety concerns: By Alan Suderman | JUNEAU EMPIRE:"Lawmakers in the Senate Finance Committee heard continued testimony Friday on a bill that would outlaw mandatory overtime for nurses except in a few cases. Some nurses, nursing groups and other supporters of the measure say overworked nurses in Alaska pose a serious threat to their patients and themselves, and a state law is needed to protect them from being forced to work overtime. "Mandating that nurses work overtime could be unsafe," said Sue Behnert, a nurse at the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium. But hospital administrators say mandatory overtime isn't a problem in Alaska, and the bill is an unneeded extra regulation that would bog down hospital staff."

Male Call, Nurseweek:"With a severe nursing shortage gripping the country, the profession is looking for a few good men. Recruitment efforts seek to prove that nursing is a great job for women and men. In many cases, those barriers are sociological. Although more men than ever are entering the profession — the total has jumped from 57,000 in 1983 to 164,000 in 2002, according to a July 11, 2003, USA Today article — men still represent just a fraction of the total number of nurses in the U.S. According to the American Journal of Nursing, men made up just 5.9% of the nursing population in 2003. The reasons are varied, but chief among them is a simple misconception among many: that nursing is a job best suited for women."

Male Call,"Despite cultural bias and relatively small numbers, more men are making contributions to the profession and discovering its rewards. Statements like "Why are you only a nurse?" or "You're too smart to be a nurse" haunt male RNs. Yet most choose nursing school over medical school for the same reason female nurses say they made that career decision to work directly. When Mark Barnett's heating and air-conditioning company was sold and he lost his job, the Texas dad went hunting for a new career."

Male Nurses Still Face Bias,"The evolution of nursing may halt gender discrimination in the profession. David Sprouse, EdD, RN, is sure he was denied a promotion in nursing at least twice because he's a man. Both instances occurred with the same manager, and he eventually left that job. The experience was demoralizing, and he responded by doing what he thought was his only option—to find another job. "I went looking for another job, but that doesn't change anything," he mused. For some men, the discrimination they've undergone has been almost too subtle to name, yet the effects are still quite real. Michael Evans, PhD, RN, a nursing administrator for 20 years and a former member of the American Nurses Association's board of directors, said he felt discriminated against when applying for administrative positions in the past."
