As a med student, i don’t think it’ll fly well on the floors. I can just see so many nurses wanting to trip someone like you up.

Nursing in America sounds tragically vindictive from what I've read in this thread and others.

Every profession comprised of nearly all women are. At least in my experience. I was also in the Marines and can tell you that professions comprised of nearly all men are *** in their own ways too

I have learned there tends to be groups who are very supportive and inspired by someone furthering their education, there are groups who tend to be negative towards people pursuing their educational dreams (maybe because of perceived biases or negative experiences pertaining to school) and those who feel they have obtained enough schooling and see further schooling as a waste of time. Either way, stick with those who are encouraging and stay focused on pursuing your dream. Don't give up or let anyone discourage you.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments. I didn't go into nursing to go into medicine. After awhile I decided that I wanted to advance my education and I liked the structure and training of residency programs. Being a nurse is at the heart of who I am and I do wholeheartedly believe that the way I view my patients as a nurse, holistically, will make me a better provider to my patients and in the way that I interact with the multidisciplinary team. Nurses shaped me as a young nurse and I will give back in other ways.
