Where to begin.....
I'm a late 30s-something guy who's been a software developer for 19+ years. I've always had a peaked interest in the medical field and for years I've considered going back to school for just that. My wife, daughter, family, and friends have given me their full support and have labled me 'brave' for taking a huge step like this. I'm not sure that 'brave' is the word I'd use, but the sentiment is definitely felt and appreciated.
It's been a long time since I've taken any non-computer science classes and wouldn't be honest if I said I wasn't nervous. I'm sure there are serveral out there that would agree, and a few that might not, when I say that nursing is most definitely a calling. I'm not sure what else to compare it to. What else would you call something that can pull someone away from a 6 figure career and start all over again?
