    Welcome to All Nurses, Andrew! I love male nurses...think they are even more sensitive than females sometimes.

    I agree that male nurses can be even more sensitive than females. So glad you'll be joining the profession! I'm currently working on my prereqs and will be starting either a Masters Entry Program in Nursing or a BSN program this year! It's exciting isn't it?!

    Welcome and hang in there. It may seem tough at times, especially in a class full of women!

    thank you all for your warm welcomes! having worked in hr for 5 years, i have no problem working around women. more importantly, they have not minded working with me! i am sure there will be times in class that will be awkward, but i am ready for it.

    i just got home from class tonight. i am so ready for this a&p class to be done with. i have a 99.9 average in the class and 2 more tests to go before may 8th. it stinks because i want to maintain the 100, but only see my grade going down. a friend has told me an a is an a so a 90 will be the same as 100, but i have set a goal to do the very best i can. no one reading my transcript might know but i will.

    thank you all (ya'll for those in texas)


    :hatparty: i'll be 31 in 4 days :hatparty:
