The Guys Club: Guy Students Come on In!

  1. 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?

    Glad to see you guys.

    I think it will be slightly to my advantage to be the only guys amongst a bunch of women, but im also slightly scared by it.

    Being a single guy, I guess I'll just have to deal with it

    I'm a male ADN student. I'll be starting in 2 weeks at San Jacinto College in Houston.

    Being the rare guy isn't that big of a deal. When I got my Vet Tech degree (vet equivalent of an ADN) I was the only male in a graduating class of 28. From what I saw in orientation, it looks like men will be mopre common this time around.

    I'm a single 35 year old guy going into my second year of a 4 year program at the University of New Brunswick. I am one of about 10 students out of a class of 90 or so. I'm told that's the highest percentage of guys they've ever had in a class.

    I'm 32 year old male with a degree in Industrial Engineering. I decided to change feilds due to the unstable manufacturing feild. Plus the federal government is paying for all my school since my plant closed due to off shore competition. I have to have Job security. I just got accepted a month ago. I am not sure how many males will be in our class. We had over 600 applications and they only accepted 70 people. Good luck to everyone.

    I'm psyched that there's so many guys on board.

    We should stick together and share our experiences through this thing. I'm finishing up some of my sciences and start clinicals next fall
