    Here in california nurses make six figures. SO if anyone laughs at me ill just tell them to laugh at my bank account!! simple as that.

    The way I see it, you have 2 options...

    1. Ask them how many other professions are there where you can work surrounded by gorgeous, intelligent, strong women AND make a 6-figure salary?
    -or-
    2. Ignore it and move on.

    <3 good luck in nursing!

    I was never laughed at or dissed (at least to my face), but in my pediatrics rotation, one of the kids was surprised there were men who wanted to be nurses. Apparently before my group went to the clinical site he kept saying that men couldn't be nurses

    Many Nursing Students have to work to pay their way through Nursing School, as did I.

    Here's photograph of me, taken in the late '80's, working, exhibiting my wares, outside the community college entrance:

    i have had a calling to be an LPN. It started when I became a PCA. I wear scrubs all the time. When I am out in public people ask if I am a nurse or doctor. When I say I'm thinking about nursing, everyone gives me support. No one laughs (yes I am a man) and everyone tells to me to be an LPN.
