30 year old male married with no children. Currently in last semester of prerequisites for my ADN. This is my second attempt at college with my first being right out of high school and lasted two and a half years.
36, Married 12 years with a 9 year old and a 2 year old. Accepted last week to my school of choice after 3 semesters of crazy-paced pre-nursing classes. Already turned in resignation papers for the fall. Here we go!
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.
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!
