Hello all. I'm curious as to whether there are any new nursing students out there who are over 40.
I find myself, a retired police officer (who has also has worked on and off as a CNA since 1990) looking to go back to school. I am married to a wonderful man who works as a cattleman/cowboy. But due to that, we have no insurance, very little retirement and no guarantee how long his body will stay intact. Subsequently, I am seriously looking at going back to school. I currently work as a manager for a local restaurant. And although I do not base my personal worth on what I do for a living, I believe that I need to do something to help secure our future.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Blessings - Kerri

Mid life here , mother of two. The baby is in high school which is perfect for my return to school. I have been an LVN for a little over a year and start my ASN program next week! I started out as a CNA, worked for four years, but decided to follow my other dream. Since I have been incredibly blessed accomplishing all of my former career goals, I decided it was time to go back to school and start working toward my second dream with it's own list of goals. It's never to late!
Best of luck in the future!
