    I'm so happy. Got in to the xtreeemely competitive LPN program in our community, at the local Jr. College. I was only an ALTERNATE, too. Not bad for a 51 yr old, huh! The 2 prerequisite courses I needed (Nursing Nutrition & Anat/Physiology) were very difficult, but the other old guy in the class and I made the only A's. Them youngin's just couldn't keep up! I am elated. Got all my supplies today. Now that's what I call FUN! The advisors, students, teachers have advised me to continue on for the RN. I feel content with finishing the LPN program first and last while having time for my art. Would like to mix creative arts and nursing, but not "ART THERAPY," but Art for art's sake and nursing for the helping part. (as well as this cool white outfit)
    I feel the same & had the same competition for entrance..my ??? how old is "old"...I totally relate to you & I'm 34yrs.///I'm very proud of myknowledge @ my AGE...but your post made me really realize it... I was sooooo nervous thinking that I was out of school 'forever" & these young ones will know all the "stuff" Well I showed them......THANKS

    Indiana does not allow 2 day Phelebotomy classes. Cna classes are a long wait list and a long drive away. Like I said this state is way behind the times.
