I am 20 years old, male, going to a technical college taking just general courses this semester, I was planning on going into nursing but the more I research, the more I am skeptical. I was planning on getting my 2 year and then trying to find a job and once I've got my foot in the door I'd try and get my employer to fund my next two years for my BSN. It is not looking like any of this is possible anymore, like many people I was lead to believe there is a shortage of nurses and I figured being a male nurse I'd have a leg up on the women because theres a lot less men in the nursing world. My question to you is, should I even bother, I'd be willing to move anywhere in the country if I had to(seriously anywhere, even alaska). I know nobody is hiring new grads, much less a nurse with a 2 year degree and no experience...I've even been reading hospitals won't take nurses with anything but hospital experience so volunteering at blood drives and whatever would just be a waste of time? I apologize for the giant post, I really appreciate the advice.
