    Yeah.. Pwn them. Do nothing but excellence. Make it abundantly clear that you are not in school for the chicks.

    ha, you'll get over that quickly going to nursing school and becoming a nurse. i found nursing school to be very male friendly and it's the same with my nursing employers these days.

    Honestly, 1 up every one of those women in your program. Being 1 of 3 males in a 30+ nursing class, I had to show those women they weren't God. For some reason, many women in nursing have pompous attitudes and think they're better than everybody else.

    You don't really have to do that. Just be an awesome person in every facet. Contribute, help people out, have a good sense of humor. Listen. Ignore negativity and let it drop right off you. They will love you.

    I think guys have higher chances to get accepted because a lot of hospital really need male nurses. I am waiting for this person to reply me because I need an application to fill out. She said she would let them know to review my application. If I get accepted, I will start as freshman.. if not, that's alright, I will just take A&P 1-2, chemistry, and microbiology in college while I wait to get accepted.

    No guys got higher chances in my program. They scored you on your GPA in prereqs with weight toward the sciences and score on a pre-entrance exam.

    OK, sorry. Perhaps I am wrong. I know, it wouldn't be fair if they do this. Though, it can be possible because it is not comfortable to have like 30 girls and 1 or 2 guys in a class. I wouldn't be comfortable being the only guy in a class.. ^^ I think in their meeting or what ever they o talk about it...
    they're probably like "Alright, let's accept more male because there's so many female" That would be great actually... I hope to see like 7-10 male once I get accepted to the BSN nursing.
