Quote from janet eibenberger
Have applied to nursing school and passed pre-admission tests with an average of 96.7 percentile. But I'M OLD. I'll be 40 when I start (if I start!). Anyone else out there start nursing school at this age?
Old? Uh oh, then I'm in trouble
I'm a thirty-nine year old mom of five, grandma of one, and I haven't even taken my nursing school entrance exams yet, lol.In fact, I did the usual "I can't decide my major" thing for awhile. I have enough credits for a degree now (couldn't decide between nursing and teaching) , just not in any one particular discipline, so you are way ahead of me in knowing what you want to do at the outset. Congrats, by the way, on your great score!
I find school to be wonderfully challenging, and after putting it off for almost twenty years, I am glad to have the opportunity to pursue secondary education. I think all my years of living, being a mom (all that organising and multitasking), volunteering in various capacities, and working in another field for ten years has molded me into a better, more attentive student that I was when I was in high school.Hopefully it'll pay off when I'm an RN, also.
So girl, go out and rent yourself "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe" (great story about a woman who "finds herself" in middle age)and start celebrating your milestones
You're off to a good start to something wonderful.
"And. . . if it turns out we hate it, we have fewer years until we can retire, right?"
That was just too funny.
