    I am presently 37. I start LPN school on March 12th I turn 38 on april 19th. I'll :mortarboard: 15mths later (fingers crossed) when I am 39! I wasted so many years NOT doing what I SHOULD have been doing. At this point I could have had almost 20 yrs under my belt.

    I recently turned 40 and will begin Nursing school in June. I have a previous degree and worked in bookkeeping unhappily for the past 15 years. I am so excited about being a nurse.....a dream for many years. I do not at all feel like the old one at school. It never crosses my mind. I will be 42 when I am done.
