    I'll be 38 when I start this fall. My second career after doing 15 years in the video game industry as a software developer. I already have a degree so in Canada we can do an accelerated 2 year program to get a BScN.

    I'm in my first semester and 42 years old. Another male in my class is 42 also (we have the exact same day of birth). How's that for the older male nurse?????

    I'm 28 years old. This is my second degree. There are several guys in my class that are in their 30's and 40's. One guy is in his 50's - he works now in hospital administration, and wants to get a BSN now!

    Well, I'm 19 right now, but by the time I actually start with my classes, I'll probably be 20. I've ran into guys who range from their mid-20's to their early 40's...

    I am 44 with 3 semesters to go. Typically I am not the oldest but "among" one of them. Age is not really a big deal to me anyhow.

    I'll be 25 when I finally start. I feel like I'm losing time and want to get my career started and school done ASAP.

    AcousticFoodie, trust me when I say you are not losing time at all, I been in nursing for over 35+ & I have seeing older students coming in for their clinical, the last one was 57yr. but like he said "I'm doing this for me" I just him for his determination, I wish you the very best in all of your endeavors~
