Male nurses still a minority in the workforce New "Man Up!" book helps male nurses succeed in a female-dominated field

Male nurses still a minority in the workforce
New "Man Up!" book helps male nurses succeed in a female-dominated field
INDIANAPOLIS — According to statistics from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, men comprise just 7 percent of U.S. registered nurses, 5 percent of nursing faculty teaching from the baccalaureate to the PhD, and 4.5 percent of school of nursing deans (2012).
Although men have been trying for decades to push past gender biases, they obviously still exist. Now, male nurses are speaking out, extending a helping hand to all men who might need some encouragement to follow their dream.
Man Up! A Practical Guide for Men in Nursing by Christopher Lance Coleman, PhD, MS, MPH, FAAN, and some of the most successful male leaders in nursing today as contributors, attempts to shake up the status quo.
The book, published by the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), is timely. In 2010, the Institute of Nursing challenged the profession to diversify its workforce by gender, and to look at how recruiting men could reduce the nationwide nursing shortage.
“I believe men need a guide, a blueprint to use to navigate through the complexity of specialty choice and a culture where, frankly, a gender disparity still exists. This is an opportunity of a lifetime for men not only to change the face of nursing in the 21st century, but also to reshape the public image that nursing is a women’s profession,” Coleman says.
Man Up! A Practical Guide for Men in Nursing is the only book on the market about men in nursing that is written and edited solely by males. Purchase the book at

    The first successful usage in a production vehicle began in Japan by the mid-1990s. Dr. Shohei Itoh and Masahiko Miyaki of the Denso Corporation, a Japanese automotive parts manufacturer, developed the Common Rail fuel system for heavy duty vehicles and turned it into practical use on their ECD-U2 common-rail system mounted on the Hino Rising Ranger truck and sold for general use in 1995.[3] Denso claims the first commercial high pressure common rail system in 1995.[4]Modern common rail systems, whilst working on the same principle sensor are governed by an engine control unit (ECU) which opens each injector electronically rather than mechanically. This was extensively prototyped in the 1990s with collaboration between Magneti Marelli,Centro Ricerche Fiat and Elasis. After research and development by the Fiat Group, the design was acquired by the German companyRobert Bosch GmbH for completion of development and refinement for mass-production Common Rail Nozzle . In hindsight, the sale appeared to be a tactical error for Fiat, as the new technology proved to be highly profitable. The Common Rail Injector Valve had little choice but to sell, however, as it was in a poor financial state at the time and lacked the resources to complete development on its own.[5] In 1997 they extended its use for passenger cars Common Rail Injector . The first passenger car that used the common rail system was the 1997 model Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD,[6] and later on that same year Mercedes-Benz C 220 CDI.Common Rail Shim & Gasket kit have been used in marine and locomotive applications for some time. The Cooper-Bessemer GN-8 (circa 1942) is an example of a hydraulically operated common rail diesel engine, also known as a modified common rail.
