The purpose of AAMN is to provide a framework for nurses as a group to meet, discuss, and influence factors which affect men as nurses.
In 1971, Steve Miller, a nurse, saw the need for an organization for men in nursing and formed a group of like-minded men in Michigan. The group grew in numbers and is reported to have had as many as 2300 members from all over the country.
In 1981, a membership proposed a name change to the American Assembly for Men in Nursing (AAMN), which would better reflect the goals and the membership.
We are California State University Los Angeles Chapter of American Association of Men in Nursing Organization.
