I think the average age in my Associate's program is about 30. There are some younger, a few quite a bit older, but pretty much everyone is coming from some other kind of life or work experience. Only a couple are recent high school grads. We've got one gal in class who's been an LPN for more than 10 years, and she's doing the whole RN program at our school instead of a bridge program at the other school in town because it's actually faster (we're in an accelerated program). There are also several CNAs, at least one paramedic, lot of veterans, a surgical tech., etc.. I think it's great. All of these people are going to bring unique knowledge and experience into their future nursing, as well as a level of maturity that almost never exists in fresh highschool grads.

I started my BSN at age 52 and completed my MSN NP at age 55. Plenty of my classmates in the BSN program were in their 30s and 40s.

I'll be closing in on 50 when I graduate. I couldn't care less. I believe being older brings some major benefits - maturity (well, most of the time...LOL!) and a sense of self assurance that I didn't have in my 20s.
