My mother, who is about to turn 50, is considering going back to school to be a CRNA. She's just about to finish her BSN (she's been an RN for 30years), and is contemplating continuing on with her education. She hasn't actually practiced clinical nursing for the last 30 years, so she'd need 2+ years of ICU experience before she could even start. Her biggest worry is that she's too old to be accepted. I've always known she was crazy, but what do you guys think? Too old? Good chance of being accepted? She's got a spectacular GPA and an amazing work ethic.
