    Great post, I have some of the same concerns as well as others. I am also changing careers later in life. I am working on my prereqs now and hope to figure the rest out later. I just moved to Corning NY and am attending Elmira. Still trying to figure out how things work here, where I moved from there was alot more support for holistic care. Sounds like you might be local? Would love to to talk sometime!
