Ive always been told that Males have it easier when it comes into getting accepted into a Nursing program. Due to the lack of Male Nurses.
Now Has any one been Denied into a Program? Just curious.
My point is that males thinking about nursing school are told that they can get in easier because they are male. "Stereotype" was not the proper word. "Rumor" would have been a better choice. Selection is based on GPA (or lottery or point system). Whether the applicant is male or female is irrelevant. NS do not set aside slots for males.
In my cohort, the atmosphere is that of any general education class. The females don't have the attitude that we don't belong there and the males don't feel like outsiders. The instructors don't treat us any different than the female students. Like I said in the previous post, 40% of my class is male. Not because the school needed a quota of men, but because that many applied for the program and had high enough scores to make the cut.
