Abstract

ARROYO RODRIGUEZ, Almudena; LANCHARRO TAVERO, Inmaculada; ROMERO SERRANO, Rocío  and  MORILLO MARTIN, Mª Socorro. Nursing as Gender Identity. Index Enferm [online]. 2011, vol.20, n.4, pp.248-251. ISSN 1132-1296.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S1132-12962011000300008.

Historically we assume theoretical, empirically verified that the nursing profession is unique to women. Have been associated in many different societies and cultures, and over time, the act of caring with the female gender. And while women have remained invisible, recluded, submissive and without any social prestige of nursing as a profession has not existed. We can say that the influence of gender in the nursing profession has led to a lack of social recognition of it, to be associated symbolically, nursing care, to the inherently female qualities. But gradually this view is changing. Gender equity is now a reality for many people, of which we can learn from their example of life and work.

Keywords : Gender; Nursing; Gender identity; Care.
