    Hi! I'm 37, married with 4 children (ages 15, 10, 7, and 5). I finished my pre-reqs last semester and will be applying to the RN program in 2 weeks !!! We have a pretty long waiting list at my college, so I might not be starting for a year. I'm taking a CNA class right now.

    Nursing is my 2nd career. I became a nurse at age 30. I'm now 32, but I don't look a day over 22 according to my patients. Good luck in your journey.

    im in my early 20s in nursing school, and a large majority of my class have demographics of mid 30s to late 40s, 2nd career, and with kids in college. i dont find it odd at all and i dont think your numbers are that small at all. you may be disillusioned because you always hear younger hopefuls talking about their plans to apply for nursing school only to find out that theyre not really mature enough (or academically capable, or whatever the case may be) to actually make it in and/or tough it out. im starting to think if anything us young'ns are the minority haha. chin up and good luck to you all!
