Thanks, for your perspective. It expresses my view as well~ I definitely appreciated the privilege of higher education as an adult (and) I definitely have had a better concentration level I always seem to be about the 'average' 'middle' (age-wise that is) in my classes, I have taken~ I just didn't know if my view was 'out of touch'. Thank you very much for your encouragement and response:-) Suzi
When I worked on my pre-reqs, I was normally the "older" guy in class, but I was also the one studying, showing up everyday, and leaving the cell phone at home. I had a plan to get into nursing school on the first try and I did. If I was 18, well then I probably would have been more interested in the ladies or which party I was going to go to; however, I am WAY past that (thank goodness) now and I knew that every person in that class room on the first day that said "I am a pre-nursing student" was my "competition."
In the end, it paid off. I did great on my pre-reqs, was accepted on the first try, did well in the first year of the program, and now look forward to my second and final year as a nursing student (well at least until I go for a graduate degree). Hard work pays off!!!
Good luck and if you need any help....you are definately at the right site!
