    I just started back to school this semester, and I'll be 46 in a few weeks. I've been working in the accounting/financial world since graduating high school nearly 30 years ago! But nursing has always been my dream, and my life has finally got to the point where I can focus on what I want to do with it; not what husband or kids need me do. I get alot of inspiration from all your posts, and feel like I really have a great support network out there.

    I am 28, almost 29. I refuse to be called hold I hold that one for my parents. I really thought I would be in the wrong age group by deciding to go back to school now. I am really happy I won't be the only one my age. Whoppee!!
    I'll be 31 when I finish my ASN. Whew!!

    That's right Donnaste, you aren't old you are just beginning!!!! That's how I look at it.... .....I'll be 31 when I finish my nursing program too....I turned 29 in January. From that day my priorities changed, everything changed. So hold on to that thought of not being're only as old as you feel.

    I guess I'm way to old to cut the mustard at 37...I'll be 39 when I receive my RN.

    Sorry, I know this thread is for 25-35 year olds, so I'll just take my cane and hobble away.

    Not quite sure how this works, but here goes anyway.
    I am 27, will be 28 in a couple of months, working slowly on my LPN, to turn around and go back to school for my RN , to BSN to MSN. Since the last three steps are going to be part time studies instead of full time like i am now, figured out that i will be 42 years old when i have finally reached my goal but oh well it will all be worth it in the end........right?????
