The Men in Nursing of Southern Nevada (MNSN) is a local chapter of the American Association for Men in Nursing (AAMN). The AAMN is a national professional association in which its purpose is to provide a framework for nurses, as a group, to meet, to discuss, and influence factors, which affect men as nurses.
The MNSN was chartered as a local chapter last September 2017, and founded by three nursing professors from UNLV: Dr. Reimund Serafica, Dr. Rhigel “Jaie” Tan, and Dr. Andrew Thomas Reyes.
Our primary mission as an AAMN chapter is to be the acknowledged local and regional organization for men in nursing. The purposes of the MNSN are to:
- Support men who are nurses to grow professionally and demonstrate to each other and to society the increasing contributions made by men within the nursing profession.
- Encourage men of all ages to become nurses and join together with all nurses in strengthening and humanizing health care.
- Advocate for continued research, education and dissemination of information about men’s health issues, men in nursing, and nursing knowledge at the local and national levels.
- Support members’ full participation in the nursing profession and its organizations, and use the Chapter for the objectives stated above
