too late to take board exam and work?

  1. I studied one year of nursing, lvn, over 8 years ago. I stopped the program because I was pregnant, and child was born with many heart defects. Three heart surgeries and 7 years later, I am ready to go back to nursing. Is it too late to take board exam or even consider working if I miraculously pass exam. Don't have the time to retake the year of lvn studies. I am being too unrealistic?

    Just my own opinion but i would start all over. Things change so fast in nursing.

    Good luck. I don't think you have to start over. You might want to take a refresher course and an NCLEX study course.
