    I had just turned 25 years of age when I started working as an LVN, and nursing is my second career. My first career involved being a technician at a paper products company, and I started that job at 20 years of age.

    The students in my LVN program ranged from 17 years young to 43 years old.

    I will be 33 when I start the LVN program at my CC. Becoming a nurse is a second career for me, I started out working for fast food resturants(worst job ever!!!) and then I became a stay at home mom for a while.
