Vanderbilt again named best school for men in nursing (News Around the School)
The American Association for Men in Nursing has again recognized Vanderbilt University School of Nursing as a best school for men in the nursing profession. In informing the school of the honor, the AAMN wrote that VUSN “easily meets the qualifications to be deemed a 2019 Best School for Men in Nursing.” AAMN recognition must be applied for annually; the application must include information on significant student and faculty recruitment, activities, inclusion and service. Currently, male students account for nearly 15% of Vanderbilt’s incoming doctor of nursing practice students and 12% of incoming master of science in nursing students. Professor Tom Christenbery, PhD’04, MSN’87, and Instructor Chance Allen, MSN’12, directed the school’s AAMN reapplication process.
