    I count my entry to the profession at 15, when I became a Candy Striper, because that is when I made the decision. Although my memory may be fuzzy, it probably was 14.

    i was 19 when i finished nursing school (lpn) and then went to a transition program to become a rn at 22. i looked so young my patients would often ask me if my mother knew what i was doing!?

    I graduated with my ADN and got my RN license at 21. I got my first job at 22 and now working on my BSN, just a couple months shy of my 23rd birthday.
