So, I've decided to become a nurse. :O

  1. Hello. My name is Jason.(gasp! Male wanting to become nurse) After spending all my time in highschool, and two years out of highschool thinking, I have finally decided what I want to do in life. I'm mainly here seeking questions, and advice on getting started in the field. So, please be gentle! :chuckle

    Don't worry, we don't bite, and don't listen to a word about "nursing eating their young".

    There are lots of boards around for you to pose specific questions. Just pick an appropriate board and fire away.

    Welcome.

    Welcome, aboard, Jason! :hatparty:
    Don't feel too uncomfortable; there's quite a few male nurses (and males who want to be nurses) on this board!

    hie there,

    actually, after my secondary school, i decided to be a nurse. after taking the course for 2 years, i had a change of heart and i went into accounting. after another 2 yrs at the desk bound job, i realised that nursing is what i really like. so here i am, after 4 years, i am back into nursing.... i am lucky that i get a second chance into this profession. and i am glad that u chose to be a nurse... it's a noble job i would say... the feeling a nurse get after saving patients' lives.... it's beyond word. and when u see ur patients well and going back to their comfortable homes... u will be proud to be anurse no matter what ur gender is....
    so hang in there and tell urself u can do it... i must remind u, there will be times when u feel disheartened and feels like giving up... don't. give urself a couple of months and u will get the hang of it... hope u enjoy nursing....

    Males are often great nurses. Some of them even make great midwives. (My midwife was male, he taught me how to breast feed!! No joke)
    If it's in your blood, it's in your blood. Hard work, sometimes thankless, but very often greatly rewarding. Hope all goes well.
