You are most certainly NOT too old for nursing school!! I know of applicants/students who are in their 50s/60s. It's all about how much drive and gumption you have. My mother is 54 and has been a nurse for 30+ years and still loves it. It's never too late to make a career change, especially if it is something that you want to do! Also, I wouldn't worry so much about the money, you'll earn it all back and more... some nurses can make up to $100 an hour (seniority, overtime, double time pay- it all adds up)...
You can do whatever you put your mind to! I might not be able to relate about being a single mother, but I too had been working on nursing prereqs for a period of 5 years (repeated classes, etc, even got a different bachelor's) all in order to get my spot in school. And let me tell you, it was all worth it just to get my ONE acceptance at a school.
If you can dream it, you can do it!
