I'll keep it brief: I'm male and South Asian (East Indian), and I applied to a few nursing programs already.
Hopin' I get some fat letters in early February!
I actually volunteer at a nearby hospital, and it's really a simple job.
I just end up sitting in the ICU Waiting Room and do homework, and escort visitors during visiting hours.
But one thing that always gets me is HOW often visitors will come up to me and ask me if I'm studying to be a doctor.
I tell them I want to be a nurse, though
I can't help but wondering... if I were in the scrubs and working in a hospital as a nurse, do you think folks'd assume I were the doc? :-/
