New Here

  1. Hello-
    I have just applied to the LPN program at a local vocational school.
    I am 45 and have been a mammographer/radiographer for 24 years.
    I have decided that I want a job with more long term patient contact thus nursing!
    I took TEAS last week and did well. Hopefully I will get into the program!
    Anyone out there who started nursing at an "older" age?
    Glad to be here!
