For the fourth year in a row, the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh College of Nursing (CON) has been named one of the nation’s best schools for men in nursing during the 45th annual American Association for Men in Nursing (AAMN) conference.
Taking place Oct. 14-16, a total of eight universities around the nation were honored at the conference as winners of the association’s 2020 Best Schools for Men in Nursing award.
The award was designed to recognize a nursing school or college that has provided significant efforts in recruiting and retaining men in nursing, in providing men a supportive educational environment, and in educating faculty, students and the community about the contributions men have and do make to the nursing profession.
Having won this award for the last four years, Jason Mott, AAMN member and Pre-Licensure Program director for the college said that the award is a great visual on UWO’s long-term commitment to promoting diversity within the nursing profession. He believes it showcases the amount of hard work and dedication that members of CON have put in to make the nursing profession more inclusive.
“The CON does many things to promote inclusion in the profession. Many of our faculty members are involved at the national and international levels in research and organizations that promote diversity and inclusion,” Mott said. “We have faculty members who are national experts related to diversity and inclusion and are looked at as speakers when these discussions arise.”
