    I had an epiphany a couple of weeks ago,. I realized that if I gave myself a chance to succeed, I just might succeed. I'm almost 36, and just got accepted to the clinical part of nursing and finishing up my prereqs this semester. I too, had to take a "Developmental Math", because I hardly remember anything from 15 years before. One of the biggest surprises of my life, I'm actually good at Math and now I'm taking precalculus that's not needed in nursing, for fun?!?! Just remember to give yourself a chance to discover what you can do with the talents you have, it's always worth it.

    I had 5 children when I went to nursing school ranging from 3 years old to 13 years old. I made it and you can too. All it takes is determination and to always remember there is light at the end of the tunnel. Good Luck! I know you will make an awesome nurse!

    Hey gerrihorse! Don't give up if nursing is your dream. Get a tutor to help you through the subjects you have difficulty with. We all have a least one thing we are not good at and struggle with that is part of life. You can do it so dig in and enjoy the ride!

    I am just getting started and posted on the board to ask for help. After reading your story I know that I can do this. I am scared all the time. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think to myself "what am I doing." I was never the smart girl in school. I am scared that once I start attending class all will see that and tell me to go.

    I want to be a nurse more than anything in the world. I love to see nurses working. I dream often that it is me. :heartbeatmy heart starts to beat fast, even now; when I think about how happy this would make me. I have not had a lot of joy in my life. after my parents died I felt my world ended. I was so mad with God.

    Now I have something to look forward to. I read the story of the girl who failed clinical. I had to look up what she did wrong. "I guess I should have known" But I didn't. This is why I fear I will fail. Then I was lead to your story, and I felt I can do this. I am going to do this. I know I will make it and be one of you all a RN I love the way that sounds Me a RN. Finally I will be somebody.

    Never let age be a hindrance. I'm 42 years old and graduated nursing school 3 weeks ago. Just waiting to take NCLEX. Your age has nothing to do with it. It's all about determination and going after your dreams!!
