I am 50 and I have finished all my pre-reqs and still say to myself, can I do this, DO NOT be discouraged by your age. You actually inspired me, by going back to school a little older than me. WOW, that is so cool.
If it is your passion go for it.
When we get older, I have found out, I realized, my life journey is really MINE. Like I said before, if it is truly your passion let no one stand in your way. It is hard, A&P I and A&P II Kicked my### Micro was crazy hard, but I found it really interesting, I am kind of a pathogen nerd, so that is that.
I had to take A&P I lab twice because of my fear of doing a practical test, but you know what, the first time my grade for the semester was D when I took it again I recieved a A. You can do it. You may have to lay the bone pictures around the house and hang up origins and insertions on your bathroom mirror and freak out family, but you can do it!
I really am not allnurses. com savvy about how to add you to my friends list but I would love to support you in your journey. So if anyone out there can tell me how to add you to a private friend I would love it.
