Abstract [en]

This study aims to describe and elaborate on the recruiting and retaining of male students in nursing education from the perceptions of male nursing students. Data was collected by a semi-structured interview via an in-depth interview. The method used in data analysis was a qualitative content analysis. This study utilized purposive samples of ten Thai male nursing students. The result showed that most male nursing students’ perception on recruitment started from failing to enter other schools to most of them being influenced by their parents to enter the nursing field. Most of them were attracted to the benefits of being a male nursing student such as obtaining a scholarship. The using of men’s image as media advertisment was recommended by participants in attracting more men to enter into the nursing education.  The perception on retention in nursing education were related to the experiences of living and studying in college such as the changing of their attitude toward nursing in a positive way which made them want to remain in the nursing education and the senior system in nursing school. It is suggested that to recruit and retain male nursing students in the nursing education, nursing school administrators have to be concerned about three major concepts: before being a student; being a student, becoming a nurse, which refers to the way to promote nursing among men.
