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

AAMN Officers 2015

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.

Henry Inegbenosun, President

My name is Henry E. Inegbenosun and I am a fourth semester BSN student who will be graduating fall 2015. I am a proud Nigerian from Houston, Texas. During my free time I enjoy being of service, reading, shopping, yoga, and spending time with family and friends. After graduation I will be working as a registered nurse in the Medical Intensive Care Unit at University of Maryland Medical Center. I look forward to obtaining my Doctorate of Nursing Practice as a Family Nurse Practitioner in the future to meet the health care needs of vulnerable and multi-cultural populations in a family context from childhood through adulthood.

Our chapter of AAMN inspires exceptional, compassionate, and diverse men into the profession of nursing as a balanced and united profession. We support student success, professional growth, teaching and learning excellence, organizational excellence and community engagement. We support respectable fellowships within our diverse student body and act as an advocate for advancing men’s health issues. I can be reached at:


Andrew Kim, Treasurer

My name is Andrew Kim and I am a second semester nursing student from Potomac, MD. I graduated from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County with Bachelor of Science degrees in biology and emergency health services, as well as a minor in music. I completed my nursing prerequisites at Montgomery College. I have spent the last five years working as a paramedic, primarily for the Johns Hopkins Hospital’s Pediatric Critical Care Transport Team. I am looking to pursue a career in pediatrics after graduation. In my spare time, I enjoy playing musical instruments, attending music concerts, and singing karaoke.

Sawyer Spurry, Legislative Chair

My name is Sawyer Spurry from Easton, MD and I am a second semester CNL student graduating in fall 2016. I plan to continue working with UMMC after graduation for a few years. I would like to get involved with clinical education and simulation as a faculty member, or pursue greater leadership roles within the hospital.  I pan on earning my DNP after establishing a foundation in clinical skills and practice. I see myself working within rural and underserved communities where access and resources within health care are limited.  

The AAMN affords an opportunity for men to better integrate themselves into the nursing environment. I find that our chapter acts as a great resource for men to feel comfortable within the profession by connecting with fellow nursing students and by better understanding the clinical roles we can capitalize upon. I look forward to seeing our chapter progress as an advocate of men’s health, male nursing, and professional development both at UMSON and within the greater Baltimore community.  I can be reached at:

I moved to Baltimore in 2001 to attend Towson University, graduating with a double major in business administration and computer information systems.
