This study aimed to review systematically and identify barriers and strategies to adaptation among Korean male nursing students. A systematic review of qualitative studies published between 1990 and May 2014 was undertaken using the following Korean databases: RISS, KISS, and NANET. The primary search terms were ‘male nursing students’, ‘nursing’, and ‘gender’. A total 11 papers were identified reporting barriers or strategies to adaptation among Korean male nursing students. Individual barrier included choice motivation. Nursing school barriers included time restriction, curriculum, clinical practicum, professor, teaching method, and friendship. Social barrier included gender bias. Strategies were categorized same as barriers such as individual, nursing school, and social strategies. Major barriers and strategies emerged from nursing school category. Further quantitative survey is needed to identify barriers to gender sensitive nursing education.
