    I just started an Accelerated Option ADN program at Miami Dade College, and out of 50 students, there's only 9 guys.
    If it makes you feel any better, we started with 90 students in my program and only a dozen were men.

    How's it gong everyone? I'm a 23 yr old nursing student from Kansas. Nursing school has been quite an experience for me. If you don't already know you will find out soon that, time managment is critical. Most of us have other things going on in our lives and school is just another one of those things, so it can be tough at times. While in college I've had to juggle playing football and nursing school for 5 years so if there are others out there wanting to compete in collegiate sports, it can be done. I'm kind of late to join a discussion like this being that I am in my last semester of nursing school, but I figured if anything I could maybe help provide some sort of guidance to some of the new guys. Good luck to all of you that are starting this semester, it will be a journey with many peaks and valleys but just keep your eye on the prize, graduation! P.S. Be nice to the woman you are in calsses with (you will be out numbered), I am 1 of 2 guys in a class of 40. They can help make your next couple years very smooth or extremely painful.

    From a scale of 1 to 10, how difficult is nursing school in your opinion?

    Hey there boys. I'm 27, wrapping up my pre-reqs and I plan on getting my BSN. I want to specialize in trauma. I should be starting the program this next fall. TEAS testing is coming up for me soon. But hey- I've already decided that (God willing) when I go through the capping ceremony, that I'd like to use a sailor cap- a dixie cup hat- and trim it with black edging on the brim up top. What do you guys think? I guess if they won't let me use that, I'll just wear it for my graduation pictures. Hey- we've got to have something, ya know?!
