    [quote=JOYCE ROSS LPN;4175693]Dear Too Old,
    You are never too old to do what you have a passion for. I was 56 yrs old and got my GED, 57 yrs old and working full time on 3rd shift as an aide on a Med/Surg unit in a local hospital. I applied at that time to Knoedler LPN School and was accepted and started at age 58. Still working 40 hrs a week on 3rd I attended school 40 hours a week on days, changing clothes at the hospital to get to school on time. Graduated LPN school at 58 and worked as an LPN at the same hospital where I was an aide for a while. I have been working at a long-term facility for @ 2 years now and loveeeeeee it. I went on last year to get my IV certification and am now starting RN School and looking into a wound care class, I will be 62 this summer (and I know God has been with me every step of the way). If I can do it anyone can. If you have a passion in your heart to help others, go for it. You will never regret it.
    God Bless and Good Luck, Joyce Ross LPN M IV

    I am seriously considering taking the LNA training but am a little worried because of my age - I am 57. Do you think I am too old for a career change? I am already volunteering at a hospital and love it. Any input would be really appreciated.
