Maryland Chapter of American Assembly for Men in Nursing (AAMN)

About Us

The purpose of the Maryland Chapter of American Assembly for Men in Nursing (AAMN) is to be the acknowledged local and regional organization for men in nursing. The organization also provides a framework for nurses as a group to meet, discuss, and influence factors that affect men as nurses. Our objectives are to:

  • Encourage men of all ages to become nurses and join together with all nurses in strengthening and humanizing health care.
  • Support men who are nurses to grow professionally and demonstrate to each other and to society the increasing contributions made by men within the nursing profession.
  • Advocate for continued research, education, and dissemination of information about men’s health issues, men in nursing, and nursing knowledge at the local and national levels.
  • Support members’ full participation in the nursing profession and its organizations, and use the chapter for the limited objectives stated above.

I transferred to Carroll Community College after an injury to complete my nursing prerequisites. I have spent the last three years working at the University of Maryland R. Cowley Shock Trauma Center working as an Anesthesia and Autotransfusionist technician. I am looking to pursue a career in Trauma after graduation. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors biking, hiking, boating, swimming and rock climbing. I also like to travel and experience a variety of things.

Secretary: Matthew Maizels

I am from Montgomery County, Maryland, and I have just finished my second semester in the Clinical Nurse Leader program. My path to nursing was somewhat indirect; I received my first degree, a BA with a major in religion and a minor in art, in 2008 from Kalamazoo College.  After college I moved to Thailand where I taught social studies at a school in Bangkok before taking a job in the northern city of Chiang Mai where I led experiential education field trips from 2009-2011.  I returned to Maryland in 2012 to begin my nursing prerequisites, and later started working at a primary care clinic in Washington, DC. When I have the time, I love to cook, as well as travel and spend time outdoors hiking and fishing.
