    I was 46 years old when I graduated from nursing school after a life long dream I got my RN at 46 years old!!!:spin:

    I was (am) 37 - and far from the oldest (or youngest) student. Don't worry about your age - follow your dream!

    That's really heartening seeing how I'm 21 and probably wont get my LPN till I'm 23-24. All this time I've been feeling like a complete failure for not getting my degree like the rest of my friends.

    EN (similar to LPN - stands for Enrolled Nurse) - 23yrs
    RN - 39 yrs

    Don't feel like a failure. I've been there, done that, as you can see I was an EN first - you are a nurse as an LPN, first and foremost! Do it in your own time, don't stress yourself out. And don't worry about what others think. Just succeed at what you are doing. Don't think for a minute that being an LPN is not a responsible position because you are still taking responsibility for every action you do, from admission to discharge. Your patients rely on you, your knowledge and your care.

    If you want to wait as long as I did to do your RN, then do it. Don't let anyone push you. Enjoy now, and learn...

    No... I meant I'll be getting my LPN in a couple years. I'm still a direct care staff at a state institution... but I get your drift. Thanks for the encouragement!

    Both of you are so young! I'm on my second career, as were many of my classmates. I would not worry about mid-20's. :spin:
