I just turned 28 in November & will be starting college in the Fall of 2013 to get my BSN. I've just not had the time or money to be able to pursue my career until now. I realize that having been out of school for 10 years... Read More

    Just completed my 16 month accel BSN this past August. I was a complete screwup the first time through college 10+ years ago. Just needed to get my foot in the door to explain my grades and lack of maturity then. Graduated nursing school with a 3.8. You can do it! Be positive, and rely on your classmates and support system when things get tough. My class of 24 consisted of people from all paths to nursing. Ages 22-54. I'm 32.

    Good luck.

    I was exactly the same way. I worked full time through college, and liked to party then. Was happy with B's and C's. In nursing school, my focus and what I expected out of myself was much higher.

    Kinda in your shoes (read your other posts about concerns with family time). I hope to start the nursing program at 28 years old Fall 2013. I've been married for a year now and will hopefully finish the nursing program when I'm 30. Then I want to work as a nurse for at least a year (to get maternity leave) before starting a family....so that puts me with a baby at about 31-32 and then maybe another at 34-35.

    Guess I'm different from most wives because I never wanted kids in my 20s. I think we are doing ourselves a favor by having kids in early/mid 30s: more stability, more experience being married, more maturity, etc.
