    Dropped out of high school at 16. Got my grade 12 high school diploma at 23. Married and five children later, went through the LPN program at age 37. I am now 41 and will get my BScN degree in a year and a half. I
    currently have a 4.0 GPA. It has been a challenge and absolutely the most rewarding thing I could ever do. It is never too late to be what you might have been!!:mortarboard:

    I sort of took the long way to BSN, decided to go to nursing school during the summer before my last fall semester, so I finished Psychology degree when I was 23, and stayed on and took what few classes I needed and finished BSN program when I was 25...Then finished MSN when I was 32. Then started PhD program when I was 34, put it on hold now...Now at 38 will be going back to complete doctoral degree, DNP program...
