    I started the program right out of high school at age 18 but quit as soon as I learned we had to give each other shots! Took some time to grow up, get a good paying job, further my education via a BS in Psychology and master's study in another field. I was so impressed by that nursing program though that I returned to it at age 26; got the nursing license when I was 27!

    I was 28 when I started pre-req's and will be 31 when I graduate (God willing) nsg in fall of '07.

    The age range in my class is 18-50ish with about half the class being non-traditional students.
