Is 52 too old to start an NP career when the nurse has had 3.5 years of nursing experience and an MBA with consulting and sales experience? VERY interested in integrative health and prevention as a sole practioner. Would like some insight. Thanks,

NP with an MBA - very very cool. Hot degree combo at this time. When I did my MSN I actually enrolled in a combo MSN/MBA degree but dropped the MBA because business made me gag. I wish now that I had stayed with it.
LOL trauma. Well I have 20 years of sales and international business consulting experience in addition to a BSN, so just looking for my next adventure! I think private practice with an integrative medicine model would be right up my alley!
I am 52 also. Starting Loyola's BSN to DNP program this summer. I'll be 53 when I start. Right now I'm completing my BSN at Kaplan University Online. I have an ADN and 33 years of nursing experience. If you want it, go for it!
Glad I saw this thread! I will be 51 this month and just finishing up my BSN on-line. I was debating applying to an NP program for fear I'm too old. Ha! I feel like I'm in great company now! GO FOR IT!!!
