    38 year old male hopefuly entering rn nursing program in 2 semesters.not sure if being out numbered is good or bad yet lol see a lot of heavy lifting in my future lol

    43 year old male starting RN program in 2 weeks. I do not know how many guys will be in my class of 16, I have orientation on 8/30/12. I guess I'll find out then. As for tats. I have a full sleeve on the left and half sleeve on the right, not a problem in class but clinicals I have been told I have to cover up. I find underarmor makes good long sleeve compression shirts that cover up and not too hot. Good luck!

    Shout out to all Male nursing students! I am 43 and went back to school last year, knocked out my pre-reqs and applied to the fall 2012 program. Found out I was accepted with a 3.8 GPA and will start in 2 weeks. I am a combat veteran ( 8 1/2 years of service ). I have always enjoyed science and medicine. After my previous wife died from cancer I decided to resign from my job of 15 years and return to school and become a nurse. Last year I married an awesome woman who has supported my dream of becoming a nurse whole heartedly and by the way she is a ICU Nurse. Any way I am looking forward to the challenge and wish you all good luck and Semper Fi!

    What's up fellas!! I'm a junior in a bsn program. I have four semesters to go and can't wait to be done. A lot of my friends who graduated already says the junior is the toughest in a bsn program so I'm a little worried. My class has about 103 people in it. We have maybe 40 guys. Goodluck to u all who are just beginning a Nsg program or who's taking prereqs.
