    Well, it would be very easy for me to say "Don't be scared" so I won't... but DON'T!!! Furthering your education is one of the best investments you can make in your future. And especially doing a distance program! I really admire that.

    I'm an older student. I'll be 51 at graduation and I'm thinking that no one is going to want to hire me at that age. I'm told that that is nonsense; I hope that's true, but talk about scary!

    Good luck to us both!

    I went to LPN school with a 60 year old and she was hired on the spot after graduation and was commended for her excellent nursing skills. Don't worry about your age that should be irrelevent-Good luck to you too and pet Twister for me- I am too an animal lover!

    Whether you feel old or not, it is a state of mind....
    The quality part of life is more important....
    Nice to meet you Don3218.
    Good luck!

    I am sitting inside a house which is only 10 feet away from the cold....but very beautiful Atlantic Ocean...the huge rain storm in the North East did not destroy the house...but I am looking for a house which is 10 miles away from the Atlantic Ocean...
    By the way, I just want to say "hello" to you...
    Good luck!!!
