    Hi Barb,
    I'm originally from Lexington, Ky. I graduated from Tates Creek High School in June of 1978. I will be graduating this May from nursing school. I understand exactly how you are feeling.

    I have to say all the young kids made me feel so good about my decision to go to nursing school at the age of 40. They have been so supportive and encouraging. I couldn't ask for better classmates!

    I just wanted to wish you the best of luck. I'm not going to say, "Don't be scared", because you will be. Trust me, it won't take long for you to overcome that feeling. Good Luck!!
