You all seem so friendly. It's so good to be here because I have no one to talk to about this.
I'm going to be 54 this month, will have an AA degree in Liberal Arts as of 6/03, and won't be able to start my nursing pre-reqs until fall of '03. Since I work FT, I'm only going to be able to take one course each semester. By the time I get ready to apply to nursing school
(for just a 2-year degree), it's going to be 3 years from now, and I'll be 57. Which means I'll probably be 58 by the time I get into nursing school, IF I get into nursing school. And that's my question: is my age going to work against me? And, if it does, how much is it going to work against me? Should I just give up my dream of being a nurse? I don't want to put a lot of time/years into pre-reqs for nursing school if there's little or no chance I'll be able to get in.
