Male vs Females in class

  1. I am just curious...
    I have been accepted into a school here in Southern California. This class, starting in August has 30 students, only 7 women. Is this common out there? Any opinions to why this is? I guess it surprises me since the majority of RNs are actually female. (I actually don't mind- I'm not complaining).

    Those who are out there in the field, it seems as if there are more male CRNAs than Female, is this so? It just seems that way here.

    Nurse Anesthetist, Flight Nurse, ER , ICCU and Nursing management nursing have percentages of males that are disproportionately higher than the percentage of males in nursing overall.

    Approximately 44% of CRNAs are male.

    my class was 4 males, one female (me).
    All of the guys had decided on anesthesia before they decided to take the nursing pathway to that goal........

    My class, at least the civilian portion is 24 students, 6 of them male. At least that is my impression from the names on the list.
