How old were you when you started and/or finished nursing school?Register Today!
- by johnnyarei Nov 20, '11I just thought I would start this thread to find out who old people are when they start nursing school. I already have a family and have worked in the insurance field for almost 10 years. A lot of people tell me that I need to reconsider my choice of going to nursing school because of my age.

- Nov 20, '11 by johnnyareiThanks for replying. That's really good to hear! I have been going back and forth with my decision. I have always wanted to be a nurse, but I put it off to get married and start a family. People have discouraged me from trying to fulfill my dream not, but I am going for it.
I'm 29 by the way....
- Nov 22, '11 by johnnyareiI'm gonna go for it! I have always wanted to be a nurse. However, the feeling became really strong in 2006 - When I had twins born at 32 weeks. The NICU nurses were so helpful and great! I wanted to do what they did. So, I want to be a neonatal nurse or a neonatal nurse practitioner.
