    28 year old male graduated college back in 2011 with a degree in criminal justice studies. Thinking wanting to be a cop hopped aboard an ambulance and caught the bug of wanting to be in healthcare. Started working in the healthcare field in 2010 volunteer with a local ambulance company. From there worked per diem for 8 month's with the anesthesia department at a local hospital as a Tech. Then jumped over to psych where I worked two year's at a hospital. Left to work for a group home for a 6 month's and a month in sterile processing. Now about 6 month's working psych still interested in healthcare field and love patient care decided should get the ball rolling on being a nurse. Bit apprehensive planning to take prerequisite classes coming Spring hoping to bang out everything before I am 30. Really don't want to stop life and don't want to be held back with career goals. Hoping can juggle nursing school with getting married next year and having kids hopefully in the near future. Know being a nurse will offer some stability and advance myself in skills can provide towards patient's. Hoping to continue with psych or into corrections as a nurse.

    I'm in my third semester at Keiser University. I'll finish in APR 2016. I'm 56 and on my third career after the military and government contracting. As for a role model, no. I just do what I feel I need to.

    I'm almost half way through my LPN program. This is my third career after the military. I'm not having any problems with the academics or clinicals but the cattiness, cliques, gossip and backstabbing is starting to get on my nerves. Hoping to get into the VA hospital so they can pay for my bridge to RN. Best of luck to all of the other guys out there!

    51 y/o here. BS Biology, MS Entomology, 10 years as a US Navy Medical Entomologist. Guess what? Not too many good jobs out there for an experienced bug, here I am in my 5th quarter working on my ASN. Hope to graduate next September and start on my new career. So far, school has been challenging, but not overwhelming and I must say, I am thoroughly enjoying myself!!

    36 years old, went from a life in culinary arts, restaurants, hotels etc to going back to school for nursing. Close to done with my pre-req's and will enter the nursing track in the fall. Usually the only guy in the bio classes that have most if not all future nursing track students.

    21 y/o second semester student in an ADN Program in Illinois, and loving nursing school so far. It is tough, but with every grade and exam I feel closer to my dreams of obtaining that RN! Just finished my OB rotation, and it was very exciting/fun/relaxed time now onto Med-Surg. Good luck everybody!
