I know alot of women nurses and was curious if anyone had an experience hiring men? Would you say that there is a greater demand to hire men because there are fewer of them available in the field?... Read More

It's all about the entrance test score (in my case the TEAS), GPA, interview and Pre-reqs (in my program they were not required but you were not competitive without them).
- 0Dec 3, '11 by ThePrincessBrideThey do have an advantage at my school's admission. We love diversity at here, but unfortunately, the school's program does not reflect that much diversity.
I do, however, as a black female, feel a connection with male students more than other students cause we're minorities, and even though, as minorities, we may have a slight upper hand in terms of admissions, in terms of jobs and other areas, we are at a disadvantage (think about a male nurse wanted to work in OB, L and D, NICU, etc).
