Is nursing a good profession for guys?

Nursing is for anyone who wants to:

  • earn between $83,000 and $89,000 per year to start
  • be able to work anywhere in the world
  • work with your hands and your mind
  • make a difference everyday (save a life)
  • have flexible hours
  • use technology

More men and more people of color are entering nursing today than ever before.

Former firemen and military men choose nursing for the thrill of working in the emergency room or the fun of pediatrics.
