Iranian universities close nursing to male applicants

Source: Radio Zamaneh

Iran's Nursing Association has slammed the decision to restrict university nursing programs to female applicants.

The Nursing Association website says: "The decision to eliminate male applicants for nursing is shocking and against national policies and patients' needs."

The association claims the decision to refuse male nursing applicants is "shocking" in view of the country's shortage of nurses.

The association reports that the male quota for nursing began at 20 percent and was recently increased to 40 percent.

This year, 77 fields in universities have announced that they will not be accepting female applicants. It's the first step in an attempt to segregate all university classes by gender.
