    I got licensed as an LPN a few months after turning 39. I always said I'd be a nurse before I was 40. Now my mantra is I'll be a RN before I'm 50

    I'm glad to see there are other nurses my age going to school, working and not letting a number define who you are. Have you encountered any age discrimination at work or school?

    I was 34 when I graduated, had been doing Psych a few years so the transition was pretty smooth... into Psych nursing.

    I was 19 years old when I graduated with my ADN and passed NCLEX. I will be 20 years old when I finish my BSN.

    Just out of curiousity, which school are you going for to get your BSN? I am 19 and just graduated with my ADN and got my first job in ICU. I would like to go on to get my BSN as well.

    I went to a Vocational School for my LPN during high school so I graduated with my LPN two weeks after my 18th birthday. Since then I got my RN in 1981 and BSN in 1998. This will be my 38th year in nursing!
