    Starting Nursing School on Monday

    Hey everyone,
    I am officially blessed. I applied and got into Nursing school despite a local 2.5 year waiting list. I start on Monday and will wrap up a BSN in two years. I'm really excited about my change in careers (IT was a bit to Mundane..go figure). Are there any nurses on the board? I know it a male dominated board and nursing is typically a female dominated industry but I was checking to see if there was anyone with any advice for a new fledgling. I plan to jump into a CRNA program and possibly grab my Masters after. :silly:

    Congrats my friend.

    Baby sister (my daughter) started out pursuing a degree in nursing (2 years at UVA), switched her degree (2 years business), and then switched back. Just finished this year and started her first paying job this monday.

    Suffice it to say, it is a good field to get into as there is lots of work out there what with all the "Baby Boomers" coming of that age. She basically picked the best offer from several opportunities.

    Good luck and study hard.

    Yeah it's a great field. I have 4 buddies that are nurses and a couple of female friends. My cousin is the Director of Nursing at Long Beach Hospital in CA so i should have something lucrative lined up once I get out of school. I had to take a drastic paycut to be able to go back to school and lastly.....my hours on Friday are 7AM to 8PM :side:. Thanks again for the well wishes. Studying and school have always come easy. Lets hope that luck continues.

    On a side note, I suppose this means no Hampton game again this year.

    One day my friend, one day, you need to return for a day of fishing followed by a game. Mabye a graduation present in 2.5 years.....

    I would be lying if I say I have never thought about the complete 180 my career will have take. I'm in a field that is possible 80% male to one that will be about 8%

    Re:Starting Nursing School on Monday

    I started higher nursing this year... But I quit. I just didn't like it.

    I hope that you'll have more luck. My class had 2 guys and 10 girls. Had around 20 hours of class per week. A lot of self study and group work was involved.

    Good luck.

    Re:Starting Nursing School on Monday

    My son is a nurse in the Army, he was an enlisted man until he graduated and is now a 1LT serving at Fort Irwin, CA. He just finished Critical Care course at Fort Lewis, WA and is now packing for his next assignment, really hard duty in ......Hawaii! Yeah, life as a nurse is really tough, but there are a few bennies on the side. :laugh:
