    Of the 23 other students comprising the group that I entered nursing school with, three of them are men. The class that is graduating at the end of next week I believe has 1 male student, and as far as I know the class immediately behind mine has 1 as well. This is about 60 students (some classes have had students drop), with 6 of them being males; that's only 1 in 10.

    So we know that male nurses are few and far between, but how old are we?

    The 1 student in the class graduating next week is 28.
    The 1 student in the class that entered the semester after mine is at least 30 (a second career-er I believe).
    Of the 4 in my class, 2 are about 45, 1 is 40, and then there is me...21.

    How old are you guys? How old when you started school?

    Just curious. :spin:

    I am in the second semester of my nursing program and I am 33. I will be 34 when I graduate. We started off with 8 men with 1 of those dropping out after the first 2 weeks. He was about my age, maybe a couple of years older. I am the second oldest of the remaining men. We have one guy who is in his early to mid forties. The rest, besides me, are in their early twenties.</p>

    56 now. 57 when i start the accelerated BSN program in may, 58 when i graduate on may 2013.
    i have become used to being the oldest and one of few, it not only, male in my pre-req classes.
    looking forward to a new career at an advanced age, but going back to school and getting accepted into nursing school have made me feel a lot younger.
