Thread: New to the Game

    Thumbs up New to the Game

    Hello everyone!

    I am a guy, just throwing that out there because I am not sure how many male nursing students are on here. I am 5 years into my career and I realized I want to start something new. I looked into almost every field, took a personality test job assessment and ended up with nursing as a possible profession for me. I researched it and love what I am seeing so far, so I'm jumping in head first.


    I need to go back to college to get my pre-reqs for nursing school done before I take the accelerated course. Just wanted to introduce myself! Look forward to connecting with all of you!

    Welcome to the site!

    It used to be that guys in nursing were really rare; the numbers are going up some. Think of it as you are making a difference in someone elses life............

    Definitely cougarnurse. I really got into my current career thinking I would be making a difference in others lives. But now that I am not as young as I once was, medical was always an interest, but I don't feel like I'd want to go through medical school to become a doctor by the time I am 40. I know thats still young, but thats a ton of school and debt in the process. Since I already have a Bachelors in another field, I can take an accelerated 1 year program to BSN once I am done with the pre-req.
