How many men in your cohort?


We had Nursing orientation today and I had my first opportunity to meet my fellow students. It turns out there are only 3 men including me in our class of 45. How many men are in your cohort?

I think there are 4 out of about 40, but we don't start until Sept 3... Also, it's (L)PN not RN, btw.

4 in a class of 75. I'm the oldest at 34, the others are early 20s.

12 males out of 29 (ABSN program)

We had 2 out of 24 to start. Now it's down to 1 in 17...

We actually were jumbled up a couple of times so my count maybe off, but I believe out of 60 RNs and 60 LPNs there were 6 or us total. And I believe two of them never finished.

My current cohort has 9 males out of 44 total. My previous cohort had 6 out of 32. Right now, we're a little "heavy" compared to what we usually get as far as males in the classes. A "typical" cohort has 33 students, about 4 of which are males at my school.

7 out of 39...the seniors ahead of us also had 7 men in about 32. Before I applied to nursing school, I called ahead and asked the school how many men are usually in a class. Normally a good indicator thats it's a "male friendly" program.
