    Thanks all, US army oradance myself, I'm a sat tracking repairer so I get to be on the internet anywhere. Rolling down the street can pop on the internet via our neat little display. This is the furthest thing from nursing you could imagine. I have wanted to be a nurse since some of the experiances I have had, and it would help people more than fixing sat systems that target for bombs. I am so looking forward to getting to a settle down with my family and start school and do the best I can.

    Again thanks all

    I just finished my semester in a class of 130 with only 6 male students. We were 7 at the beginning, but one dropped out. I am also in my late 40s and am enjoying the challenge. I finished the semester with a 2.8. Not too happy about the gpa, but I am still in the game for the next few semesters.

    How are you liking it so far?

    HI, this website is cool, lots of info, I am also a male nurse in my college, doing a AA RN program in California, of course there are only 3 guys in my class, but that's okay. We have been doing a good job I guess. Does anyone know about hospitals helping nursing students? financing their studies, etc... for a contract in the future.
    thanks a lot okay, and merry christmas to all of you.
    take care

    Another male student in a class of 130, just finished my semester in a three year program. Went in as a sophomore. It's okay, but often hard to get lab partners to work with, but some (females) are cool.
    Hang in there. There is definitely a place for males in the nursing world. Don't let the females scare us away at all.

    Here's another one...
    I'm starting the program at Florida State Univ. on the 25th. I have no idea how many other guys are in the program. Hoping I'm not the only one...

    Take care all!
    I also go to FSU and I'm applying for the Fall semester. I heard its really hard to get into. I have a 3.15 science GPA, but I have good letter of recs and a good essay so hopefully I'll get lucky and get in.

    I've met more than a few medics who've gone on to get their RN. One who I went to high school with is now in med school.
