    Let's see... I worked full time as a ward secretary my senior year of high school (3-11). Finished high school early (extra loads), graduated on a Friday and started RN school on the following Monday. Went straight through with huge loads. Got out and took boards started as RN at 20yrs. old. Have worked as such for 34 yrs. now. Now doing only legal nurse consulting (certified). My tail is dragging!!:spin:

    I am 35 and will start my new job as a LVN next week. Went back to school when I was 31 and started LVN school at 33. With any luck at all, my goal is to be a RN by the time I am 40.

    As Johnny Cash sings "I turned 40 years in prison doing life without parole" , just kidding!!:chuckle I turned 40 while in nursing school, I figured I would be the oldest in my class, but I wasn't, there was a lady that was that was 48, one that was 56 and the oldest wouldn't tell her age, but said that she only had 5-6 years until retirement (my guess was close to 60), we all passes and are working as nurses. "Life skills" is a good teacher.

    I was 35 when I started working as a LPN. That was after 5 years of pre-reqs, one class a semester and then the 11 months in the program. I had two youngens, so it took me a long time.
