    Age 22: got my B.S; had an internship in cardiac rehab in my last semester (ironic, I know)where I discovered my love of the older population and my desire to become a nurse
    Age 22-25: worked in my field; took my pre-reqs
    Age 25-present: finally accepted and entering my second semester of nursing school
    Age 27:May of 08 anticipated graduation from nursing school!
    I have more college credits than I can count but I would never be where I am today if not for the journey...

    I am a new nursing student!!! Divorced with 4 kids and a wonderful b/f. This will be my second attempt. The first one I attempted while going through a divorce and had to move about 3 weeks before the end of first semester. And the sickening part is, I was passing with an 86! Age 29 :hatparty: It's gonna be a fight but I will finish in '09 :smiley_ab

    I was 38 when I started the practical nursing program. I just started the PN to BScN program this past fall. I will be 43 when I graduate. As much as I wish I had started earlier in life, I don't think I would have been as focused in my twenties. It has taken me this long to figure out what I want to be.
