Hello All Nurses! I am new to this site and thought I would start my first post. I am 27 and I have decided to go back to school after 6 years. I am excited to start my journey of becoming a nurse. I have been feeling like I am so old and having such regrets for taking so long to go back to school. My question is to all of you on the journey with me, Does the feeling of being too old, and regrets of not finishing sooner go away once I start college?
Thanks for reading and I would love to hear some of your Pre-Nursing Stories

I got a late start also. I am 32 years old and decided about a year ago that I needed to go back and finish school. I have always wanted to be a nurse and have been in the medical field since I was 18. So I moved back home with my parents and they are helping me out with my 2 boys while I work and continue school. I was accepted in my community college Nursing Program for Fall of 2013 and I cant wait.
Once, I saw there were a lot of people that went back after raising their family, I felt better. I thought I just wasted my years away but my boys came first. So I worked to take care of them. Luckily, I have always had a good paying job. I love the medical field and taking care of others. I wish I would have started sooner also, but I am also glad I waited and now I am more focused.
I will be continuing on to become a CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist
Good Luck and it is never to late to go back!!!
