    I'm definitely over 35! I'm 49 and will be 50 when I start nursing school this fall. I've always wanted to do this and am very excited (and anxious at the same time). I'm entering a diploma program that is rated quite high and it has heavy clinical experience--hands on! Best wishes to all of you and I'm so glad to have this board! I'm addicted!

    I'm 51, a mother of three grown sons, 31, 22, and 17. Hanna is my female, 2 year old Pomeranian. She is my little girl. I am newly married to a great man! He's 57, but I continue to tell people he is 56, mental block... This summer I'm taking the LPN re-entry program, I have been away from nursing for awhile. Then I plan to go back to college part-time to work on the rest of the pre-requisites to enter the BSN program, at OHSU. I hope to work at the VA Medical Center, after I complete the re-entry program. I did one of my clinicals at a VA in Washington and loved it! Good luck to all.

    I was 35 and pregnant when I graduated with my LPN. And I lived through it I was 38 when I went back for my RN. I am now 47 and do not regret one of those blood sweating tears I shed to get here. I still love nursing

    Hello everyone!
    I guess I'm second to the oldest on this site. I hope to be able to get hired by the time I graduate in two years when I'll be 50!

    Geeze oh man, it is a scarry process for me. I'm the mother of two wonderful sons, Erik is 23 and will be a senior at IUP, Mike just graduated from high school last night and will be a freshman at same college. Then there is me..48 and just finished my 1st year in a 3 year ADN program at a community college. I wish I would of done this 30 years ago! I also am the caregiver for my 89 yr. old mother who has lived with us for the past 7 years. I need to find someone to stay with her when I start clinicals this August.

    Anyway, I'm glad that I'll have all of you for support when I get stressed (which is alot!) looking forward to chatting with you and making new friends.:chuckle
