I am new to this forum. I have made the decision at age 53 to pursue the nursing degree I wanted before I got married and had children so many years ago. For awhile I have been telling myself that I am too old and the programs are so competitive that I would never get accepted. I've decided that those are lies & I'm determined to make this work. I have many of the prereqs finished and I am enrolled in a CNA school to get some experience and earn a couple more points for application purposes. My questions are: What has been the average wait to be accepted into either Clark or PCC? Would LCC be a good alternative? Are there any other schools nearby? I live in Vancouver. Any advice or wisdom out there?
