    Hey ya'll I'm a third semester student at Hinds Community College A.D.N RN program in Jackson, Mississippi. I'm 20 years old and ready to get done and get out. I'm so sick of studying, but I love that I chose to become a nurse. I plan to get my CRNA one day, or RN-first assistant. What about ya'll? Anyway i just found this site like 2 days ago and its nice to see that people in other programs are having the same troubles as me. Everyone keep up the good work and good luck, and hopefully it will come to end even though it seems like it's taking forever to graduate.

    ARRRGHHH ARRGHHHH (thats my tim the toolman grunt)!!! How are you gentlemen?!!? I think it's great seeing so many guys breaking stereotypes and gender roles and joining this awesome profession!!! It really does take a special person (let alone man) to do this...

    So... has anyone heard the barrage of "hey Focker!!" jokes? Though seen as a put down, I think it glorifed the role of males in nursing, and I commend Ben Stiller for doing that role!!

    Good luck gentlemen!!!

    ps. <--someone design a guy nursing icon!!

    sooo...hey all you fockers out there! i am not a guy..but rather a girl...and i am graduating in about...oh...65 days or something like that. a class of 44 we have two guys and all of us ladies absolutely love them! so...keep up the good work and we will continue to recruit more guys so maybe then there can be a respectable profession where it is 50/50.

    and if there are any cute, single students or graduates who are over the age of 26 and live in our around CT....let me know! maybe we can talk nclex or something. GOOD LUCK TO ALL! and i hope no one minds a girl posting here! NIGHT!

    Hey, us older guys want to part of the club also. The ones in school who say that they have 6, 9, 10 guys in their class should be ecstatic. When I was in school, there were 40 students and 2 guys and he dropped out after a year. Being the only guy had its ups and downs but it would have been nice to have a "dude" to hand with.

    Hi all youz guyz!

    I'll be heading to NYC and Columbia after nearly 20 years in California - I'm in the ETP/BSN>NP program and saw about a dozen males out of 120 students at "visit day" - psyched to change direction and get into health care. Anybody else in Manhattan on this board, lemme know! I could use some tips on living arrangements and all that.
