    Hi there,
    I too am an older nursing student. I am 37 in my fourth year of a three year degree with another year to go. I am having trouble getting thru some of the classes but I am not giving up. Going back to study after 20 years out of school wasn't easy at all. I have just re married and have a daughter. Keep it up..you will get there in the end.

    email if you would like to chat

    HI Everyone!
    Nursing school is the pits! just kidding!I only say that when I've had a bad day. I just feel I cannot pass a test for nothing everytime I think I do good I do crappy. Any ideas that may really work? Ihave come to far to give up but I just can't seem to do good this semester.

    I'm glad to see future nurses networking to share information and concerns. I am a LPN, I graduated only a year ago and this site allowed me to vent some frustration and laugh when I wanted to cry. I know I'm not a "student" any more (then again we are always students) but feel free to call on me if you wish. Good luck to all.

    Hi I am Judy.

    I am 44 and I am just going to start the program in August, I have already taken just about all of the Pre courses, only have a couple more then all I will have is the nursing courses. I got my letter saying I qualify for the program, I just hope I get picked for the fall program. just think I had been out of school for almost 25 years before I went back to school. My poor brain cells do not work like those 19 and 20 year old brain cells. It is hard for me to do all the studying, I have a very hard time retaining everything. I am not am all A student, I get mostly B's, C's and I have one D in eng Comp II. So yes it is really tough but you just have to hang in there and do the very best you can, That is what I am doing. Well wish me luck getting into the fall program,

    Hope to hear from you about how you are doing.

    Good luck
    Judy

    Hey fellow nursing students!

    I am in my last few months of this four year degree and am I ever thrilled! WOWEE!!! It's going to be rough entering into reality again, but I have never been more sick of school in all of my life!

    Right now I am completing a professional portfolio and my learning intents (and learning plan) and I am having problems putting the simplest of sentences and actual thought together. At this point in our academic careers, does ANYONE have a Nursing Philosophy they would care to share with me?

    Hello everybody, I am a student nurse too, just 24. I am so surprised to see so many of you enter the nursing school at 40 or something. It is impossible here in our place and the society do not welcome elder new comer. What made you make such a choice?
    Actually I am thinking of quitting the job recently. I think that may be I am not suitable for this job or this job. I used to be so absent minded and careless in the ward, that's dangerous and I brought troubles to my colleague, though I never make a mistake so serious to cause death. But I am afraid that someday in the future I will. After one and a half year, I got no satisfaction, no happiness, not much interest here. I am not sure to go or to stay.

    Hi Bamboo,

    Since you commented on the age thing...maybe that is why there are a lot of older students going into nursing Being older, you know what you want and able to handle situations much better due to life experiences...... For those of you that are young out there I am not attacking you for your youthfulness...Many young women/men can handle being a good nurse just fine....I wish I was 24 going into nursing, instead of 42...but when I was 24, I was too busy raising a family....Maybe nursing isn't for you right at this moment in time....maybe when you are so called older, elder, mature :roll eyes: you will then decide that nursing is for you. Good luck in what ever you do Peggy8

    I think peggy8 is right she's not attacking anyone just stating a fact.
