NEW HAVEN (WTNH) – “The conversations are endless, especially at home at the dinner table…,” says Andrew Horobin.
Andrew is enrolled with his triplets, Luke and Zach, in the nursing program at Southern Connecticut State University.
The trio is inspired by family members who also work to help others.
In high school, the two brothers entered a certified nurse assistant program, working as hospital assistants during the height of the pandemic.
“COVID also gave us the opportunity, for me and Luke, at least, to take a… course to become firefighters. Then we also took an EMT course,” explains Andrew.
Less than 15% of registered nurses in the United States are men.
Associate Professor Maria Krol explains: “If schools make it easier for people to get degrees, I think we will see more and more,” explains associate professor Maria Krol, who said despite the number number is low, but men still participate. “There is a male president of American Nurses Association has really brought to light that men have a place in nursing and they should consider it. “
The trio feels comfortable working together.
“If I don’t understand something, I can ask them and they will explain differently,” says Zach. “I guess we all have the same mind.”
Luke says: “Being in someone’s worst day is something I’ve always wanted to do.
Andrew added: “And then seeing people come home, in a better state than when they came to you.
Andrew and Luke hope to one day work in the emergency room, while Zach heads towards pediatrics or labor and delivery.
