I've been hearing two different things over the past several years. While I was in high school I attended the CNA program and the nurses there always mentioned how they loved seeing men being involved with nursing and how it's easier for men to get accepted into nursing schools because of not many males wanting to do that type of work. Here recently, I've been hearing it's almost impossible for a male to get accepted into nursing school and it actually hurts more than helps and I'll most likely be placed on a huge waiting list before I could even be considered a couple of years from now. Which of these statements are more likely true? I mean I don't want to waste my time and money in college while I have a wife (she's trying to get into LPN school) and a baby at home that depend on me? Would it be in the best interest to just stay in the workforce looking for a career or give nursing a chance? I'm getting kind of discouraged by the remarks here lately stating it's not easy for a male to be accepted into a nursing program. Isn't that discrimination?
