Okay, I did it. I just finalized my submission to nursing school at the University of North Florida. I have a previous bachelor's degree, scored a 4.0 in all my nursing prerequisites, and did well on the TEAS, so I'm hoping to get in to the Accelerated 2nd Bachelor's Degree Program. I'm just concerned about doing this at my age - in my mid-50's. I read on the AACN website that "mature" nursing students are desirable, but am wondering what thoughts on this are in the real world. I'd appreciate your honest opinions. Thanks!
