More men choosing nursing as a career

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Paul Fedorchak of Bedford was a plant manager for Morton Metal Craft. When the company was bought out and the plant was closed in 2009, he decided to switch careers. Fedorchak became a registered nurse.

“I always wanted to go into the medical field,” he said. “The plant closing was a blessing in disguise.”

He qualified for education assistance under the federal Trade Adjustment Assistance that helps trade-affected workers who have lost their jobs as a result of increased imports or shifts in production out of the United States. He was one of eight men in his nursing class. Fedorchak, 40, is now employed by Conemaugh Memorial Hospital in Johnstown and specializes in respiratory patient nursing care.

Male nurses are becoming increasingly more commonplace. According to a study by the U.S. Census Bureau, in 1970 only 2.7 percent of nurses were male, compared to 9.6 percent today. The male proportion of licensed practical nurses has also increased from 3.9 percent to 8.1 percent in the same time period. The majority of registered nurses, 64 percent, work in hospitals. An equal number of licensed practical nurses work in nursing care facilities or hospitals at 30 percent each.

Zeke Fyock, 20, Windber, is a senior at Conemaugh’s nursing school. He is one of about 20 men in a class of 50. He worked several years as a nurse’s aide before starting nursing school and continues to work as an aide.

“The demand for nurses is extraordinary right now,” he said. “A lot in my family are in health care, including my uncle and my mother who are nurses.”

He was always interested in nursing and shadowed his uncle while in high school. That led to some static from some of his friends, but he has learned that many of those who made fun of him are not doing anything now.

Grads in Health Care Fields See Bright Job Market

Family physicians, advanced-practice nurses and physician assistants are especially in demand.

Job opportunities for grads specializing in primary care are increasing and unlikely to decline in the near future.

Job opportunities for grads specializing in primary care are increasing and unlikely to decline in the near future.

Though they may not want to admit it, baby boomers are getting creaky — and a lot of their parents are requiring medical attention, too. And starting in 2014, millions of people who haven’t had insurance will gain coverage and feel freer to seek care.

That all adds up to a seller’s market for health care pros, particularly in the ranks of primary care. Demand is increasing “virtually across the board,” says Susan Salka, chief executive of AMN Healthcare, the country’s largest health care staffing and recruiting company by revenue. “And we are expecting it to become more robust in the next couple of years.”

Indeed, the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts net job growth of almost 3 million health care jobs in the decade ending in 2020, a 29 percent increase, beating every other group of occupations.

Family physicians were the most sought by the employers who used physician search firm (and AMN subsidiary) Merritt Hawkins, according to its most recent annual survey. (Their average salary climbed 6 percent to $189,000.) Internists were in the second spot. Also high on employers’ wish lists: hospitalists and psychiatrists.
