    I am also 45 with a bachelor's degree and turning to nursing. You are definitely not too old. When I got to my first microbiology class this morning, I thought I would be so old . . . turns out there were only a couple people under 30 in the class!

    You are never too old! As long as you have the passion and drive to obtain your dream anything is possible! You have more life experiences which would be beneficial to you during nursing school.
