    I think most nursing students are 25+ because it requires a lot of maturity and discipline. I did one semester of college right out of highschool and had no direction or goals except to go to the beach, meet guys and go to parties. By the time I turned 25 I realized I needed to get a life and went back to school. Even if I had stayed in college the first time I dont think I would have done well or learned anything because I wasnt focused like I am now.

    I am 25 and hopefully will earn my ADN by the time I reach 29. I went to college for three years right out of high school and failed miserably. I was to busy with my social life. Now there is nothing I want more than to be an RN.I just hope that I can get into the program.

    Hi there... I'm 34 and will be 36 when I graduate. There are quite a few people who are 25+ in my classes (daytime). Many of us already have bachelors degrees in something else (including myself - b.s. in marketing).

    We're not such an oddity anymore!

    I just turned 25 and I'll be 27 (almost 28) when I am done. I go to school during the day, and most of the students are older than me, though there are a few 19 and 20 y.o.'s. This is my 2nd bachelors, and I know I am older and wiser than I was at 18. I know if I had started nursing school at 18, I probably would have flunked out b/c my study habits were terrible (came back to haunt me big time!) and I just wanted to party w/ my friends!

    I'm 28. Have to finish my pre-reqs before I'm accepted into the nursing program. Hopefully, I'll graduate 2006. By then I'll be 31. I'm so glad this question was asked. Here I thought I might be to old for this but it turns out, I'm just the right age.

    I'm 25. If all goes well I will be 27 when I graduate. I'm hoping to go on for my Master's and get that done by 30...that's if I'm not drained by then. :chuckle

    Well, I'm the old one here! 33, will be 34 when I graduate. I didn't realize the value of an education when I was younger, so I didn't start college until I was about 25, and had two young kids. Better late than never!

    I just turned 35 and am in my 2nd year of ADN program. I feel like maturity and life experience are the pre-requisites I need to get through. I don't think there's any way at all that I could have done this when I was younger.
