    I am 30, in a large LPN class....out of 65 that originally started, there were only about 4 out of high school. I think the "non-traditional" student (us old folks!) are quickly becoming the norm.

    I personally feel that I am a much better student now than I was when I originally starting college at 18, even being a single mom with 2 young kids. Most of us older students are more dedicated.

    Good luck to you!.

    I totally agree......there are only 2 nursing students that are straight out of HS in my evening classes. The rest of the students are my age (29) give or take a few years. I agree about being dedicated. I have given so much time to my family, and don't get me wrong I'll continue to give...but I have to dedicated more to time to developing me.... \

    Hi all,
    I'm going to be taking my Nurse's Entrance Exam at my college next month. I am very nervous. I know I have to do extremely well in order to get accepted. For those of you that have taken the test already...what was on your exam??...math???...reading?

  7. by   maire entrance exam was from the Psych Corp...had 5 sections...Verbal, Numerical, Life Sciences (biology), Physical Sciences (chemistry), and Reading Skills. I scored 97 or better in all categories except physical sciences (Got a 77 I think - I really suck at chemistry :stone ) and I am by no means a genius. It was like taking the SATs back in high school. lol I wouldn't sweat it if I were you.

    I'll be 31 when I graduate next month. The youngest student in my class is 22 and the oldest is around 50(I have to guess because he won't tell me). The vast majority of the other students are between 25 to 35.

    I was 32 when I started school. I had to do it during the day, that is all they had. But rest assured, many in my class were older.

    Are your teenagers more advanced for their age in Singapore? There wasn't one person under the age of 23 in our class. We had very many student who took Nursing as their 2nd or 3rd degrees or professions.
