Abstract

The purpose of this study is to explore the motivation of men in nursing to pursue a PhD. It is a qualitative study using a
phenomenological approach that involves interviews with men who are practicing nursing and currently enrolled in PhD
programs, or are alumni. Deans of nursing schools were asked to recommend participants for the purposive sample. These
individuals were contacted, and the sample consisted of 12 men in the Eastern region of the US. Interviews were conducted at the
participant’s educational institution, place of employment, or by phone. Consent was obtained for recordings, and transcriptions
were kept in a locked file. All identities and related information has been kept confidential. Data was analyzed for themes and
notable elements of motivation. This study provides insight into the machinations and meaning of the decision among an underrepresented
segment of the nursing profession. The results highlight the influences, both internal and external, on decision
and timing. The information is significant to nursing because it may hold potential to increase the male population of nursing,
incorporate the male perspective, enhance the scholarly image, and advance the professional functions of the discipline. Doctorally
prepared nurses are the bedrock of nursing research, the designers of policy for healthcare, and the conduit of education for
current professionals and the future of the profession.
