Let me start off by saying that I am really sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. I'm COMPLETELY new to this site. Okay, I'm a Junior in high school. I'm thinking about pursuing a career as a Nurse Practitioner and I have some questions:1) If you had to estimate, how many men that are nurses do you think are NP's? (I'm asking because I am a male. And I've heard that NP has less men than any other kind of Nursing.)2) How many pre-requisite classes (if any) do you have to take and on average, how long does it take? How long does the becoming an RN part take?3) After you become an RN, can you go straight into an NP program? Or do you have to spend x amount of years as an RN and then qualify for an NP program?4) How long do NP programs take to complete? 5) How hard is it to work and go to Nursing school at the same time? (Which I'm not really worried about working since the college I'm thinking about attending is ~30 minutes away from where I live so not having a roof over my head and food in my stomach isn't a big concern. But I would still like to have some gas money so I don't have to hound my parents for it and money for other things.)I'm sorry if these questions seem stupid. I'm just so clueless about this and would like to get this stuff straightened out.Thank you in advance and feel free to ask any questions!
