    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)

    Thanks, z's playa, J Lynn, love a nurse, & dwoods! Yes, good luck to us all. And I am glad to hear of another person close to my age wanting to be a nurse. I had visions of a photo of myself in GUINESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS as the oldest LPN graduate, all hunched over with a nurse cap on, big smile. Well I'm not done yet, just starting, so it could still happen... Have a great day everyone. It is wonderful to have a goal in life, something challenging.
    with love,
    blondiii

    blondiii - congrats. I live near Peoria, IL - where are you from?? I'm in an MSN program at the moment but didn't become an RN until I was 36 (I was an LPN for two years before that). Since I'm back in school I'll have to work until I'm older, grayer and more stooped over to pay it off!
