I am 48 years old and have been in college for two years. I made the decision that I wanted to pursue a career in nursing. I was accepted to a wonderful school with a full scholarlship.
My question is this, would you consider that I am too old to begin a career in nursing. I anticipate that I will graduate with a BSN in about 3 years (since I had transfer credits from another university).
A little background on me. I have always been interested in the medical field. I do seem to have a knack for all things medical. I am the mother of 3 girls youngest of which is 15. I am a kind compassionate person and have been running an online support group for depression on IRC for the past 7 years having suffered chronic depression for the better part of my life. Happy to say that it has been controlled by medication for the better part of 6 years or so.
Am I fooling myself here? Am I too old to be thinking of starting a new career? I really would like to know your opinions. Any comments would be appreciated.
Thank you and sorry for the long winded post
