Russell Against the Discrimination of Male Nurses

Russell Tranbarger is a male nurse who successfully secured a position in the Army Nurse Corps by serving as a medical surgical nurse. During his early career, Tranbarger didn’t make a lot of noise. However, realizing how discriminated male nurses are and how small their number was, he figured that the best way to advocate for their role was to assume a leader position. He mentored other male nurses and offered support to them.
In line with his realizations, Tranbarger assumed several executive positions. He was also able to co-author a book titled Men in Nursing: History, Opportunities and Challenges. His accomplishments inducted him into the Hall of Fame of the American Nurses Association in 2012.
