The Murses: Six Men Set out to Conquer Nursing


Many of us are aware of the saying that men are truly from Mars, and women are from Venus, and that we live on two different worlds. But how does a man survive in a woman’s world?

There is no doubt that there is an increasing number of male nurses in the world. Men are no longer adjourned by sexual stereotyping which, during the time of Florence Nightingale, has made nursing a career primarily for women.

Uploaded in 2011, this creative and entertaining video we found online features Jian Salcedo, Jesus Lopez, Travis Sanborn, Mandeep Uppal, Sajid Anwar, and Michael Tillett, a group of male nursing students from California State University in America. It is an epic tale of six men that set out to conquer the world of nursing.


Anyone who is a “murse” or a male nurse can take some humor from this post. As of the moment, the clip already has broken more than 209,000 views on YouTube and still climbing.

Gil Wayne graduated in 2008 with a bachelor of science in nursing. He earned his license to practice as a registered nurse during the same year. His drive for educating people stemmed from working as a community health nurse. He conducted first aid training and health seminars and workshops for teachers, community members, and local groups. Wanting to reach a bigger audience in teaching, he is now a writer and contributor for Nurseslabs since 2012 while working part-time as a nurse instructor. His goal is to expand his horizon in nursing-related topics. He wants to guide the next generation of nurses to achieve their goals and empower the nursing profession.
