just a question for the older/non-traditional students and grads here:
have you found that, as an older student or one that has already graduated, you do better or worse than young people right out of high school?
now, i know the amount of study time more than likely is higher for us (the memory ain't what it once was), so that's not really my quandry.
i guess, from reading the dreaed a&p, pharmocolgy, etc. posts, i am fearful of not being successful in the actual nursing portions of the road to my rn.
right now i am only doing prereqs, and doing pretty well.
seeing the struggles/fears/stress of the actual nursing classes has me a little worried.
can, say an over 40 student, be successful without completely losing their mind?
i am in no way shooting for a 4.0 average (though wouldn't that be an added bonus
guess i am just looking for some input/encouragement from older students that have been there.
thanks for any replies :kiss
