Father & Daughter earn ABSNs Together

    We often hear of mothers & daughters graduating from nursing school at the same time, but it is refreshing and inspirational to see a father and daughter join the ranks of the profession together.

    I think that's pretty cool. Maybe a father-son or mother-son combination will be next.

    Great story. Congrats to the both.

    On a personal note, my son had given some serious consideration to nursing, but then balked when he found out all the hard work and thinking with scientific rationales that I literally have to do every day. He ended the thought with, "Damn Dad, to do all that? They don't pay you enough..."

    My dad and I will graduate in May one day after each other. He retired 28 yrs in the army and began nursing school the same time I did. He goes to school in Savannah, and I go to school in Tn. Both BSN degrees... The only bad thing is that we cant be at each others graduation. One of us will have to miss theirs to see the others...

    So kewl to see more Dad and Daughter nursing students...

    Speaking as a dad with a daughter, I'm guessing his classmates will miss having him there.

    Congrats to both of you.
