    I have had lots of people ask me if I am going to be a 'male nurse' - I alway tell them I tried to be a female nurse but flunked the physical. I start in 8 weeks.

    Well, I'm not a guy, but here I am posting on this thread again..

    I can relate... I'm not quitting work to go back to school FT this term (not in the nursing program yet), but just thinking about it for next year, I'm already terrified of leaving my job and not having that paycheck every week... SCARY! :stone
    HELLO!! I am not a guy either....but glad to see there are so many already in the nursing field or going into nursing! GOOD LUCK!

    Just wanted to comment to you manna, I start my ADN program on the 23rd and my last day at my full time job is this Friday! SCARY!!!!! I have been getting a regualr paycheck fr the last 15 years so this is really a scary thing for me.....I know I will be fine but I am right there with you.....I am terrified!

    Hey yall this is ya boi representin the Bahamas and lettin yall know that there are Male Nurses/Nursing Stu. out there. I know because I am one of them . Do you know what it is to be the only male out of my class year of 63 nursing students? Just keep me in your prayers as I grow this this exciting and non-forgetable journey called "The College Experience." I ask that you will pray for success in what ever I do and for God's speed and blessings as I go forth and spread the JOY of nursing.


    God Bless man!

    Hi All!

    I'm a crazy father of 2 ex-premed who just recently turned down Northwestern to go into a RN program.

    I already have an Associate in Science, but I'll be getting another ADN and then go to a 4 yr school.

    When I went to an info session about the RN program ill be trying to get into, out of like 70 ppl only 5 were guys.

    So I want to know are there any men out there?
    I am glad to find this site and especially comrads of the Male nusing population. Greetings. I will be starting my Nurse core in Jan. at Austin Peay in Tennessee. I'm anxious and ready! I've been a CNA for about 6 years and truly this is my Call. The clock is ticking though since I'm stairing 40 in the face. Please feel free to email me with advice/comments or just to say Hey.

    Even though I turned down Northwestern, I'm now completing my BA at DePaul and I I'm also starting A&P at for my nursing program in a few weeks.

    Ugh, look, it's still light out!

    Anyway, my four direct entry master's choices were Boston College, Northeastern, University of San Francisco, and UCSF. I'm now thinking that UCSF is by far my #1 choice. In fact, if I don't get in this year, my girlfriend and I will probably move down there anyway, and I'll try to get a job as an HA while qualifying for residency.

    Yeah here's another guy going into nursing. Coming from an analytical instrumentation background (mass spectroscopy) to nursing, we'll see how this adventure goes...

    Ive learned more about women from the female students than I ever did with my ex-girlfriends. I have a little crush on one of them.. but she's kinda old for me. oh well, gotta get back to priorities... STUDYING!
