How many of us are 25 - 35 yrs. old?

  1. I'm just curious....most of the nursing students in my courses are about my age....29 give or take a few years...lol....but I was told that the daytime students are a lot younger.

    I'm actually 25. I still got awile to go in my general ed courses,before I get into nursing school. By then I'll be 28.

    I'm also 25. It hurt my feelings to see that under 25 post and know that I wasn't part of that group. The aging process. Gotta love it.
    I'm in my second semester of the RN program and will graduate at 26 in May of '03. When I was young I always hated having a late birthday (everyone was driving before me!), but now I don't mind it quite so much. In my program, almost everyone is in the 25-35 age group with a few young 18 and 19 year olds and a couple oldie-but-goodies mixed in.

    I think that alot of us are 25-35. I'm 27, and will be 29 when I graduate. I just finished my pre-reqs, and most of the people in my classes were my age or older.

    I don't know about most of you, but this will be a second career for me. I did the school thing 10 years ago, and thought I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. Guess what?

    I wish all of you great happiness in your career.

    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!
