Features Pace University’s Gerrie Colombraro in an Article about Male Nurses

Associate Dean for administration at Pace University’s Lienhard School of Nursing speaks about inclusivity for male nurses in the university. New York, New Jersey Educators Say More Men Are Becoming Nurses. . . . . Gerrie Colombraro, RN, PhD, is associate dean for administration at Lienhard School of Nursing at Pace, where the percentage of male nurses in the undergraduate program is 9%. She says that although the school does not specifically recruit males, the atmosphere of inclusivity comes through in PowerPoint demonstrations to potential students.

“When you look at the picture of what our group looks like, we have men and women from virtually every ethnic group you can imagine, ranging in age from the early 20s to the 50s,” Colombraro says. “I hear men say, anecdotally, ‘I could be comfortable there. I wouldn’t be the only man in the room.’”

. . . Colombraro said some of the stereotypes that men are worse at communication and women are worse at math don’t hold up in her experience. She says she doesn’t see a more favorable response to male as opposed to female graduates when they enter the workforce.

“There are some men who do really, really well with communication skills, and you would typically think of that as a female-type skill,” Colombraro says. “By the same token, in our program, women and men have to be equally skilled in math. When you’re dealing with medications that will save a patient’s life or kill them, everybody has to be strong in math.”
