- Aug 29, '12 by akbear54I am 58 and in my 2nd quarter of school. You need to go for it as time will quickly pass and you will regret not going for your dream.
I only wish I had started 2 years earlier, but wishing gets you no place.
- Aug 30, '12 by traumaRUsI agree that 56 isn't old nowadays. I'm 54 and plan to work till I'm 70 or 80 or 90 or until they pry my old cold hands off my stethescope!!
- Aug 30, '12 by BCgradnurseNo way is 57 too old! We'll all be working well into our 70s, so you might as well be doing what you love!

- Sep 1, '12 by GuttercatI'm 45. I love this thread.
- Sep 10, '12 by youngvgyI do not think that is too old. I am 56 and decided I was not too old to get my Masters as a Nurse Educator. I still have a good 15 years and it has always been my dream to optain an advanced degree. Go for it.
- Sep 11, '12 by AnivaIt's never too late if this is what you want to do. It may be intense, but I personally feel becoming an NP is worth it.
