    University of Phoenix Online. It is a really great program, very germaine to the market today. It will give you the credentials you need to teach, but also allow you to then go and get a certificate of advance studies as a NP or CNS.

    The best part of UOP is each class is 6 weeks long. You can get your coursework done in 2 years taking a class every 7 weeks. There is sufficient time to get your coursework done, and still be able to work!

    Best of luck with your future endeavors!

    Which program are you attending for your MSN, and congratulations on getting your MSN. I hope someday to get my MSN to teach at the collegiate level.

    [color=#ff0080]just thought i might mix a drop of estrogen amongst all the testosterone, and by the way you guys are not as alone as you may think you are, in my class it was almost 50/50 ratio of males to females and by the way u should let some females join your little secret society who knows what you'll end up with!!!

    Hiya Nursenessa! Welcome! Just so you know we are not trying to hide from the women in here!

    Trust me, if we didn't want to be around all the nice women we wouldn't be going into nursing.

    Hi all,
    Another guy here. I was a marine and was discharged in 99. I went back to school and got my B.S. in Kinesiology in January 04. A friend of mine introduced me to nursing field and I thought this is interesting. So I sent out my application to Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA. for a MSN-E. I had my interview with them last week, now I just have to wait for the good news. I was the only guy at the interview and I was terrified. But I did pretty good job at answering all the questions. Pray for me gents....

    hi guys,

    i'm a 23 yr old RN,BSN from Kerala, India.. i wonder if the guy nurses do stick on to nursing once they finish their studies.. or do they switch over, or feel like switching over, to any other field? i for myself, felt a bit confused whether nursing would be the thing i'd want to do for the rest of my life, and joined for a master's in microbiology.. i'll be finishing it in a couple of months, and i wonder whether it'd help me in a nursing career. i've cleared CGFNS exam, and hope to start working in the US in a couple of years..
    any idea if my master's degree will be of any advantage to me in nursing career?

    qrioz - welcome to the forum, it is nice to have you. A Master's degree is always helpful for career growth and advancement. I am not really clear what type of Master's degree you have ... is it in Nursing or is it in Microbiology?

    I have been a nurse for almost 21 years. I started as a LPN at 19 years old. I think men that happen to be nurses are encouraged to move into management pretty early in their career. At least, that is my experience. Shortly after finishing my RN degree, I moved into management very fast. I also learned that being a nurse manager is not all glory ... nurse managers are probably some of the hardest working nurses out there. I am sure I will get flammed for this statment, but that is ok ( ). I made a decision that I was more comfortable being a staff nurse and working defined hours. Once my kids are grown up and in college, I might consider going back into management :uhoh21: , but for right now, I like having control of my life and the hours that I work .

    Congratulations on your desire to become a nurse. From my experience, it is the single best decision I made in my life, next to having my three children. Good luck in your future.
