    Another black nurse, well, once I finish nursing school, will give his

    I'm pretty sure that the population isn't high of black male nurses, but I don't know if I really care or not if I am the only black male nurse in my school (which I don't know for sure), but this is what I wanna do. I want to help others, and I definitely don't want to be behind a desk all day (was a business major). I glad not to only represent black males nurses, but male nurses in general. All that matters to me....

    I am a black male planning to begin in a nursing program in January 2011. I will be leaving my current job to focus on the program. Any suggestions on grants/scholarships for a black male, father returning to college. I am trying to find some financial assistance for the next two years while I am in school. Any suggestion is appreciated.

    Personally, here in the midwest, they don't have quotas for anything, it's grades that get you in or keep you out of RN school. There are several African American Male RN students here, I'm good pals with a couple of them, and quite a few AA female RN students, and it is pretty much representative of the community in general. Glad to hear you're pursuing nursing, but keep in mind these places really look at grades.

    There was one black male student in my class of 60. In every clinical rotation though I encountered at least 1 or 2 black males on staff.
