    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:

    36 here. Just starting out. Went to school to be an auto mechanic right out of high school. But have been in the medical field now for about 10 years and could not think of a better field to be in.
