Good afternoon! I'm brand new to this site but have been reading for about a week now-what a wonderful resource! I'm 35 a dad and husband and have quit an 18 year job in order to RN. I've been accepted into the local program here in Fl. and wanted to get any and all feedback I could regarding male RN life. As the bread winner I need to make an informed decision. I care about people, and want to make a difference. As far as the money goes we are already living on less than what most RN's make so that's settled. I owe it to my family and myself (I don't think I'll have another 2 years to devote to school again) to make the best decision I can. So male or female, new or experienced-give it to me straight! Thank deeply for any info.
Tom in FL.
