57 And I Made It Into Nursing School!!!!!!!

roseofKY roseofKY (New) New

I got my phone call yesterday. It is official and I start LPN classes this Monday night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited as this has been a life long dream of mine. I will turn 58 this year and I have decided to go for it. I took care of my adoptive son from age 6 weeks until his death at the age of 9 1/2 years. I did his trach care, changed his g-tubes and many other things. I provided care for my dad the last 4 months of his life before he died of cancer. I have always wanted to be a nurse. I love helping people and taking care of them. I am attending night classes so this will take me two years to complete, unless I get to the point where I can attend days. I have two sons I have since adopted, they are now 9 years and 11 years old and I have had them since they were 5 months old and 2 years old. I am just so darn excited. I excelled on the TEAS test (YEAH!!!) I have taken numerous medical classes preparing for this. My goal is first LPN, then maybe on to RN, I haven't decided yet. I know one thing, you are never to old to go for your dream. Thanks to all who have listened to this rambling rose from Kentucky. :p
