The global shortage of nurses is a problem that has serious consequences. Recruitment of men into nursing has been seen as one possible solution to both diversify the profession, and fill the shortfall, but there are multiple barriers for males in nursing. These barriers are reported as they first contemplate a career in nursing, during nursing education, and as they transition into the profession. This results in decreased retention and success, with males leaving nursing in higher numbers than their female peers. Clinical instructors are described as an essential source of encouragement and support for nursing students, yet are also identified as one possible influence that deters men in nursing. This research study utilized a qualitative, descriptive, emergent design employing semi-structured one on one interviews with female adjunct clinical instructors. The participants were asked about their experiences, attitudes, and perceptions of teaching male pre-licensure nursing students in the Fundamentals clinical rotation. Roy’s Adaptation Model served as the conceptual framework for the study. The emerging ideas and implications suggest areas of nursing education where change can be made to increase recruitment, retention and success for male nursing students, and facilitate their greater acceptance in the profession.
