Nursing shortages are nothing new in the United States—the problem goes back almost a hundred years. And since men make up only 12% of the nursing workforce, the solution appears simple: Get more men to join the ranks. But how? On this week’s episode, host Daniel Sung explores what keeps men from pursuing nursing as a career, and what can be done to help alleviate the shortage.

Featured Guests: 

  • Jonathan Son is a second-year undergraduate at Emory University on the pre-nursing track.
  • Dr. Sydney Spangler is associate professor at Emory’s Nell Hodgson School of Nursing, with a joint appointment in the Department of Global Health at Rollins School of Public Health.
  • Curry Bordelon is Vice President of the American Association for Men in Nursing.

Student Highlight: Daniel Sung is a second-year undergraduate at Emory University majoring in Chemistry and Film & Media on the pre-med track. He has never made a podcast before.
