    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.

    Hey all-34, career changer. I start in the Masters Entry to Nursing at DePaul University in January. Excited and scared all at once. Getting married next fall and got a whole lot on the plate. But seriously can't wait!

    This almost sounds like my story word for word (except for the Army). I have completed many of my pre-requisites to get into the program. I still need to take the nurses entrance exam in order to get into the program, but I can't seem to bring myself to do it (I know it sounds stupid), but I have gone so far and been through so many downs lately, that I can bare to fail.

    How are you doing now?

    Hi im Tony! I am a LVN working on going back for my RN, ADN then to MSN. In my LVN program we had 5 or 6 guys and only 2 at graduation. I am looking to go back to San Jac for my RN and that program is mostly male over female at least it was when I was at the campus. This is the first time I will have to balance work and school and I am excited but at the same time nervous.

    I am starting Medical Careers Institute on Aug 25th for last pre-requisite and then start the RN program on November 2nd. Any advice from you guys on how to prepare for the start of the Nursing program. Thanks so much for the help in this endeavor.

    That sounds about right. When I went to nursing school I have 3 guys in my cohort. Those three guys are my best friends today.

    I am the only guy in my MSN-FNP class!

    In the ER I work at we are predominant guys for my night shift crew. Works out well because we get the work done without so-called "boyfriend or baby-daddy drama" (for some nurses)

    Guess time to be the ladies man! HA!
