Hi All! I'm a crazy father of 2 ex-premed who just recently turned down Northwestern to go into a RN program. I already have an Associate in Science, but I'll be getting another ADN and then go to a 4 yr school. When I... Read More

    I'm starting my ADN program in a couple months! I've recently started working as a CNA and I know for sure nursing is what I want to do.

    I'm in my last semester of the accelerated/second degree BSN program at Georgetown, graduating next month.

    In my cohort of 57, there were 9 guys which I think is the highest percentage they've ever had. I've yet to have a problem with any sort of discrimination by, or interpersonal drama with female nurses. As long as you're comfortable working with, and working for women supervisors you should be fine.

    For whatever reason, most of the guys who I've worked with who were already RN's seemed to end up either in the Emergency Dept or in some kind of ICU setting.

    Congratulations on your progress so far!

    It's funny you mention that most of the guys you worked with ended up in ED or ICU because I think that is where I want to go....at least right now.

    It may change by the time you graduate, but right now it's super tough to get a job in an ICU right out of nursing school. ED is also very tough. Even though I'm doing my Senior Practicum in a MICU at a big hospital, I'll probably have to start out working in ED or some sort of IMC or step-down unit for a year or so, then transfer to ICU.

    That is very understandable though. Given the absolute need for a nurse to be on their game so to speak is no surprise in an area like ICU.

    I'm a male, 49 yrs old and starting my second semester in LPN class down here in South Louisiana. One of 3 males in the class of 24 total, all of whom I'm old enough to be called "old man". Bunch a kids, what you gonna do. Being out numbered, you just have to go along with the program and take all their sassy remarks. I'll be glad when I'm done, believe me! Oh, did I also mention that I'm in better shape than "All of them"!

    Just completed week 2 of my LPN program here in Pennsylvania. 4 of ~60 students are male. Just wanted to say hello and hopefully in a year I can change my letters from SPN to LPN. Thanks!

    Greetings fellow dudes. Just got my acceptance packet today, officially a nursing student and truly proud to be. I am 1 of 2 males in my class of 40. I think there are 3 other men in the program ahead of me. That makes 5 of 110. It is going to be a big change being surrounded by females coming from auto sales management where we had 2 women in the entire organization and they answered phones and made coffee, and also working in a hardware store part time now while in school where we rarely even have a female customer let alone other female employees. All I can say is, I really hope the other dudes are cool....

    Hi all! I've just signed up to this site and i'm suprised to see so many guys including me. I'm a second year student in nursing from the university of ottawa. I've met a lot of guys in my program but they're mostly older than me (i'm 22). I'm doing a bachelor's degree in nursing (4 yr program) and thinking of doing my masters: i'm thinking of becoming a nurse practioner.

    As of now my grades are higher than 80% in all my classes (physiology, psychology, microbiology, anatomy.ect) maybe one day i'll consider medecine, we'll see. Glad to meet all of you and I want to congratulate all of us for our hard work.

    Oh by the way, having to study with all of these female students isn't that bad! Especially when you're single like me Oh and all of the students i've met thus far are very nice, helpful and supportive so no complaints here.
