    Karl here, age 45 (soon to be 46!) and almost finished with my third semester of an accelerated BSN program at Curry College which is near Boston. I graduate, God willing, in May of 2008. First degree a BS in Agricultural Engineering, and worked 20 years as a software engineer. I still do software consulting to try to help minimize the burgeoning debt that being a full-time student while having life expenses and responsibilities causes. In addition, I work as a PCA (Patient Care Associate -- otherwise known as a nurse's aide) in a med-surg (mostly surgical) unit. I love my fellow nurses and PCA's. I'm the only male on the unit (save people who float there, MD's, PT's, OT's, etc). So far, the only drawback to that has been that there is sometimes an absence of large gloves in the rooms.

    Hey fellow male nurses, I was looking for an "introduce yourself thread" but couldn't find one and thought this was a suitable place, if I'm wrong, my apologies.

    My name is Chris, I'm an E.R. nurse and have been for over a year now. I graduated in 2007 and started immediately in the E.R. During nursing school I worked on a post surgical unit and the E.R. I did my preceptorship in surgical intensive care.

    I'm an owner of another large nursing forum, but will not name such group as it irritates me when people advertise their group on my group as well. It's just disrespectful in my opinion.

    I was in law enforcement for seven years before choosing nursing as I've come to find out is not uncommon.

    Well, I'm glad to be part of such a nice group of guys! I'm glad to see there are many more male nurses in the world than I thought, we're a growing population.

    I'm sure I'll get to meet each and everyone of you in the forums eventually. If I don't, feel free to contact me anytime for any questions.

    Looking forward to chatting with you all,
    RN, Emergency Services
    Atlanta, Georgia

    Congrats, its tough, when I got my LPN I was working a full time job, now I'm back working on my LPN to BSN and working full time again, its tough but well worth it.

    hello all. I am a new member this site. It seems like there's a lot of information on it that will prove very useful to me. I will be starting an accelerated BSN program this fall at Drexel Univ. in Philadelphia. I have a bachelors degree in Environmental Science. Right now I'm finishing up my prerequisite classes needed to start program. Can't wait to begin. . .

    I need to get a pic of mt old bike. I just got it out of the shop, where I had it overhauled and a new paint job and styling. Looks better than when I bought it in 1970. An old Triumph 750 " The Trident"
    Runs ever so sweetly again
    My brother just bulit a chopper from an original Triumph twin & frame. Looks great.

    I'll stick to my GolWing, that way I can bring the beer & pizza. Farts & Stories are extra added attractions

    OK. I'll admit it in case it's not obvious from text. Go Team Testosterone!

    This serves as my intro post to allnurses. My areas of experience list would best not be aired here. Critical Care areas dominate, I guess.

    There weren't many of us when I came off the assembly line. Now I'm way down the line on the hamburger end of the nurse grinder; well done, consumed...doggy bag. Ah well, so much for the humor part of my program.

    Great to see this community of men.
