    So great to read this stuff. I feel humiliated trying to start a new career at age 50(!) while my classmates are in their teens. Most of my life I was a truck driver. A few years ago I worked overseas and was able to save quite a bit of money. So when I came back I swore I would train for something else so I wouldn't be on the road all the time.

    Everything I researched and everyone I spoke to all said that exact same thing: that health care jobs have the best future, quick training, etc. So now I am starting nursing school and very nervous and paranoid about it, but feel a lot less alone reading all these posts. Thank you so much.

    I'm 27 and starting back to school for my RN. Right now I manage a restaurant, am taking math 1111 and sct 100, I also start the CNA program in two weeks. I figure with my CNA I can get into the field while I'm in school to get a leg up with job experience. Besides my boss keeps cutting my pay and as of oct 1st I'll loose my health ins. Figure now is as good a time as any for a change. NW GA
