Male nurses have always been a slim division in an industry that's been booming for years -- an industry still dominated by women. According to Male Nurse Magazine (who knew?), out of the approximately 2.6 million registered nurses in the U.S., there are still only around 7-8 percent who are male nurses.

So what is it about nursing that fails to attract men to a solid career that not only pays well, but also offers a good slice of job security during the coming decade?
