Any other over 35 students? - page 2

    Hi - not a student anymore but I did go back at 38. Graduated just before I turned 41.

    I have also homeschooled all my kids through the "learning to read" years. I wanted to make sure they actually learned to read well . . .that starts at birth actually.

    I loved it. Have a toddler now and looking forward to teaching him to read also.

    Actually the truth is, we all "homeschool" if we teach our kids to talk and read to them and teach them the ABC's and counting and have them help us cook and garden and . . .well, you see my point. Parents are the first teachers!! Be proud of that role.

    Not too much important input here. Just wanted to say I am a 36 year old mom of a 12 and a 6 year old. I took pre reqs for a year and then moved to Georgia so had to back out of school until my son hit kindergarten. Went back last fall to finish up the rest of my pre reqs and am starting the official nursing program in the fall. I am so geeked up and excited! Can't wait! So Ann as you can see we are out there for sure. We only get better with age - :-) Good luck to you in your studies!!

    Hi Ann,
    I am 48 and about to start my 3rd year of a 4 year BSN program.
    I have been an aid for over a year and was an Industrial salesman for 23 years before. I got into nursing to go into medical or pharmacutical sales but really enjoy working with the patients and nurses. This is the most rewarding work I have ever done.
